Curvature tool.
Good day to all - questions to those who are often forced to draw something quickly with curves in the illustrator.

- Can the curvature tool move several selected points at the same time?
- If the shape of the contour is a little more complex when adding a point, the shape breaks and additional unnecessary points are added to the curve, thereby making it difficult to edit - can this be somehow overcome?
- Do you use any add-ons for illustrator that allow you to draw curves with B-splines? (for example, like corel).

Thanks!

There is a very old, but outdated software "Expression 3" in it, the curve is drawn with B-splines, the desired shape is achieved by adding points, but you can move a group of points, nothing extra is added to the shape, drawing is very good. fast and accurate.
In principle, I don’t digest Corel and I don’t recognize it - although it has B-spline curves.

You can always select anchor points with the direct selection tool and move them. You can draw with the pen tool instead. It won't add points on its own, but on the other hand you are responsible for getting the curve right.

The curvature tool makes drawing simple, but it comes at a cost.
