  1. So far the app is a slam dunk, but I've noticed issues when trying to use/manipulate the control points with the pen tool. It seems as if there is no way to reset the starting point or manipulate the control points without accessing node first. One way to alleviate the curve reset issue (I've seen this in apps like Skribl and Graphic) you tap the main point to bring the control back to it. As for manipulating the points I think it just needs to be added in where we can also grab the points while in pen Tool. It's almost perfect though and I love that the feature to use the area outlined with pen tool as a select tool. Once these are sorted out, I'll be more excited to use this app primarily for building catalogs.
  2. I miss the ability to numerically edit the coordinates of control points on curves (adjustment layers). In PS, the input/output values of a control point are displayed and can be entered numerically, or - even better - precisely adjusted with the scroll wheel. Especially when working in LAB for detailed color correction, this precision is a must, as manipulations of the a/b-curves allow for great control of subtle color shifts but also wreck havoc on a picture if only slightly misadjusted.
  3. I would like to request that the handle be different somehow than that of the point they control. It gets pretty hard to differentiate the difference when you have a bunch of points and you need to adjust just one. See attached to see what I mean.
  4. It would be good to have the ability to constrain control points for vector curves to guides / grids / elements. At present you can constrain control points to 45° increments by holding the shift key whilst dragging a control point from an end point. For really accurate work on eg. display type it would be great to be able to snap control points to guidelines/intersections, to be sure of the shape of a curve, in both angle and length. Separate but related question: can you manually set co-ords for control points? Thanks, J
