Aargh, what is happening? 😅

today, I'm having the issue that Illustrator snaps both handles of path anchor points together so that I can't use them separately anymore.

I could swear this wasn't happening before; and if it was, not when the handles were so far apart 😶

 

Did I accidentally hit a key to toggle this snapping feature?
How can I disable it?

 

Thank you peeps :hatching_chick:😊
