Chapter 5. PEN AND BEZIERS > Changing Curves and Corner Points

Changing Curves and Corner Points

If you retract the handle that extends out from a curve point, the next segment becomes a straight line.

To retract a handle:

1.
Drag to create a smooth curve point.

2.
Move the Pen cursor back over the anchor point. A small angle symbol appears next to the cursor.

3.
Click. The handle retracts back into the anchor point . The point is now a corner point with only one handle.

Figure 5.11. Move the cursor back over a point and click to retract a handle along a curve.


4.
Continue the path with either a straight line or a curved line.
