It works fine here. Make sure your curve is not in "sharp" mode. It works with "smooth" or "smart" modes

I'm obviously missing something!  Ctrl+drag doesn't seem to be any different to not holding Ctrl as far as I can see, and there's nothing in the hint line about using Ctrl. What is it supposed to be doing in AD. (As far as I remember, in Photoshop the handles move in and out together when you hold Ctrl.)

Thanks for your reply.
I have the curve set to smooth and still doesn't work.

Sorry but I can't speak to anything about photoshop, don't have, don't use it, I'm using AD.
but i have see youtube videos showing the AD does this with the Ctrl and drag to make a curve symmetrical.

When using the pen if you click "Ctrl" it becomes the "node tool" until you release Ctrl.

I know it changes the tool, but that doesn't really help the original question:

I can’t select the Ctrl + drag on curve handles to create an even curve.
I am using the latest version of AD.

You need to use the node tool to move the handles, but Ctrl+drag doesn't make the curve "smoother"! If both handles moved together, as they do in PS, that would help to smooth the curve. 😊

Thanks again for your reply.
Here is a video that shows that it seems to be possible to do this in AD, but i can't do it. i hope this makes the problem more clear.

That's certainly how it works in PS, but I'm ***** if I can see how to make it work in AD! Maybe it's been added in the Beta version?

Maybe, in this instance,  it would be possible to use an oval shape and convert it to curves, rather than trying to draw a smooth curve.

(hold)Shift + click between two points to create a straight line
Ctrl+Shift is used to to make an evenly arc with pentool
Shift is used when using the nodetool
This also works on quickshapes after converted to curves

The trick is the "right mouse button" as discovered by @DegasBrush ! It's not mentionned in the "Vintage Logo" video you posted.
