Not necessarily, Ton.

 

To use it as a useful tool it is useful to deselect all (or some) anchor points of the objects in question. Usually, the quickest way is to select the object, go to the Select menu > Object > Direction Handles command and then use the Reshape tool.

It seems that the object must contain at least one smooth anchor point to use the Reshape tool.

That works but seems unnecessarily complicated, nothing like that in the help file.

That's right. It's cumbersome, but that's the way it has worked for decades.
