How to make a vertex on each intersecting vector line?

This may be an embarrassing question to ask, but hey how do you actually make each intersection point a vertex without manually adding them using the pen tool?

I’ve tried union → flatten, but then it creates 4 vertices there(packed together) instead of 1 since a union turns paths into surface areas.

I need these vertices because then I can generate a dot on each of their spot using DotsOnVertices, without vertices I don’t know where to place my dots.

If there are any programmatic ideas that you could think of, that’d also be helpful.

In the early Figma years, it was as simple as pressing Cmd/Ctrl + E (Flatten the object). I don’t know why they removed this feature. :frowning:
