Are you sure that’s new, Eduardo? It looks like a ‘smart’ node.

evtronic3, first thing to remember about the smart node is if you make almost any change to it's handles it will change into a smooth node.  It's how it interacts with it's neighboring nodes that's important.  Make a shape with several nodes, convert them all into smart nodes.  Then grab one and move it, you will see that the handles on the neighboring nodes change to keep the curve between them as smooth as possible (in a smooth node they don't move).  Which will change the paths on either side of those nodes to change some.  Hope that helps.  Mike

From the About lines, curves and shapes help topic:

The type of node controls the connected segments. There are three basic types of node:

  • Sharp (A)—causes an abrupt change in direction between segments, creating a point.
  • Bézier (smooth) (B)—creates a continuous curve between segments.
  • Smart (C)—creates a continuous curve but uses a line of best fit.

That description meant nothing to me.  I had to use it to figure out what it actually did or didn't do.¬¬
