Hi folks,

 

Please see the vid below.

 

Could anyone tell me why sometimes a handle doesn't curve a line?

 

The top horizontal line stays resolustely straight!

 

Thanks!

This circle is a "Corner rounding" vidget. So, if there was a corner (created by pen click or by Corner tool), it appears to allow you to round the corner. If you created the arc segment by 2 smooth anchor points, there is no original corner to round.

If you joined 2 points by Join command, the closed points mode depends on the original points modes (starting one = corner one, ending was created as smooth).

A shot into dark:

Your path is not closed. Try to toggle [Ctrl]+[Y]

( = menu: View --> Outline View) to verify.

Yes, that's it, many thanks! 🙂

 

So i guess the solution is select the two points at either side of the line, right click > join?

 

Sorry, if i could trouble you with just one more question:

 

That little dot within a circle that lets you round out a corner: it seems to me to appear and dissapear randomly.

Please see the vid below. In it you can see that when i click on the path on the right, i get the icon and can adjust the corner, but when i click the (similar looking) path on the left, it doesn't appear, any ideas?

Hi @Daz V 

two questions and every question has a good correct answer.

 

I will mark both answers as correct. I have no control over which answer is pinned on top.

 

Please: open a new thread for a new question.

In best case:

You ask, you get one or more good answers - and finally you mark the one (or more) good answer(s) as "Correct Answer".

 

This is clear and will help future questioners.

Regards

😉

There are no rules on that specifically, it just makes things simpler for those looking for questions and answers in the future.
