Lesson 5. Using Points and Paths > Retracting and Extracting Handles

Retracting and Extracting Handles

As you’ve seen, the handles control the curvature of the line between two points. But what if you change your mind and want a straight line segment instead? To retract a handle, you drag it inside its attached point. You can also use the Object panel to accomplish this. Using the Object panel is easier, and you are assured that the point is completely retracted.

If a point you are working with doesn’t display handles when it is selected, you can pull out the handles.
