adjust b-spline line

How can I adjust a b-spline that I have previously created. I can select it but I cant get the points to "open up" to make changes?

You mean the bezier handles? If so, there's no bezier handles, because they are not bezier splines but B-splines :)

The overall shape of the spline is not based on the direction of handles, but it's an averaged curved path derived from the position of the nodes.

Other than that, the spline nodes are edited with very same Adjust Control Points tools. Just don't expect the Bezier handles. If you really want the hanldes, you can convert the shape from B-spline to Bezier. Select the spline and go to the shape inspector. There, in shape type, select the kind you want (linear, bezier, b-spline).
If ithe problem is something else, let us know.

Make sure that you select the Adjust Control Points tool in the toolbox. Keep pressing the TAB key until it comes up, or select it from the icon list.

Heya,

Also, double-clicking on a line/shape will shortcut you to the Edit Points mode.
