Default Point and click to *add* vertices in Gambit?

Hi, does anybody know if it's possible to "point and click" to create a vertex? I'd like to add vertices to a curve which has too many gaps. To know their exact x,y coordinates in advance is crazy (i.e. creating vertices from coordinates). I'm using Gambit 2.3.16 and have no manual.

Thanks in advance!

split edge with vertex and use point option.

yes, and you can slide the new vertex along the edge by holding down the mouse button. Try it, and you will see how good it is.

Thanks Red Lemon & Kasper! It sounds like this only applies to vertices connected by an edge? What if I wanted to add a vertex that isn't reasonably within an edge, like an outlier?

your monitor is 2d. How do you define the third dimension for vertex placement?

Sorry, not what I meant. I have a shape that only has a few points. I'd like to add more points before giving the shape an edge. I've been adding the points in my txt file, which works better than entering coordinates in Gambit (though it shouldn't matter but I have more luck), but I'd rather click and point in Gambit. Does that make sense? Thanks!
