Does anyone know of a way to delete a node without changing its neighbors' bezier curves? I hate the default behavior so much — I want to *get rid of,* not replace the nodes. See images.

I think I found a way
1. Select Node to be removed
2. "Break path at selected node" in the toolbar
3. There are now two nodes at that location. Delete them.
4. Select the two new endnodes
5. "Join selected endnodes with new path" in toolbar

There's no way to do this with keyboard shortcuts, and it should definitely be easier.

@doctormo Ooh!! 😮 It does the job! Wonderful, thank you!

@Artha Inkscapes secret tag line is: where there's a will, there's a preference. Probably.

I actually get annoyed by the same auto shape option myself.
