Sharp nodes' handles

Recommended Posts



Sorry if this is a way too obvious question, but I can't find the handles of a sharp node.


I created a crescent shape, converted it to curves and added a node. This newly created smooth node I turned it into a sharp one. But this sharp node has no handles!


After the crescent shape was converted to curves, it already contaied two sharp nodes WITH handles, but the new sharp node I created has none. Am I doing something wrong?


Thanks in advance!

Hi hukes, stephen may,

Welcome to Affinity Forums :)

You can select the node with the Node Tool and convert it to to a smooth node pressing the Smooth button in the Convert section on the context toolbar. Another way is to drag the path near the node to position it how you want. This will create the corresponding control handles for the surrounding nodes. If you need to get rid of one of the control handles, press and hold ⌥ (option/alt) and click on it.
