Insert Spline Point Example (VBA)

This example shows how to insert a spline point in a spline sketch.

'----------------------------------------------------------------------------
' Preconditions: Verify that the specified template exists.
'
' Postconditions:
' 1. Sketches a spline containing four spline points.
' 2. Inserts a fifth spline point.
' 3. Examine the graphics area.
