Drawing out new handles from existing point

Recommended Posts

If I have a point on a path that does not have any control handles, how do I pull out new ones? Sometimes selecting the point and selecting ‘Smooth’ in the contextual menu in node editing mode works and new handles appear, but sometimes they don’t. I have to add a new point on the path, then delete the point with no handles and then move the new point into the deleted point’s position ... not ideal!

If you have drawn a vector by tapping points on the screen, the node will be sharp. Control handles in that case are set to 0. If you select any or all of the nodes w. the node tool, and change them to smooth nodes, handles should appear. If you want to keep the nodes sharp, with the node tool, push the line, and you will see handles appear between the adjacent sharp nodes.
