Cable Routing Spline Path, Adding In Between Points

Using NX 9 Electrical Cable Routing...

Does anyone know a way to add in-between points to a spline path routed within the Electrical application?
It only appears to give the option to add points following the last point created where if the last point happens to be at the connector it doesn't make much sense.
As shown in the image below I want to add a point in-between Point 1 and Point 2 where those two points are located at the connectors.

 

Another related question is...
I'm assuming this might be a way to use deformable part to reroute the cable through clamping locations in the next assembly where this cable is used. In the NX help file they show cables modeled and then assemblied through P-Clamps using deform part, but give no indication on how this was accomplished.

Nevermind...
Found all I had to do was switch the selection to point on curve and it added the point into the sequence depending on where I placed the new point on the already created spline path.
