missing bezier points
on Mar 21, 2007 at 9:41:41 pm

I drew a path. Now I can't see or edit the bezier points. I right click and choose 'edit points' ... nothing. Trashed prefs ... same thing. Drew a rectangle as a test ... same thing. Can anyone tell me how to get the bezier points on a shape path to reappear?

Many thanks!

Are you sure you are not selecting the B-Spine tool? It's a wonderful tool for drawing a path quickly, but it does not give you bezier handles (not necessarily a bad thing). If you click and hold on the path tool you'll see that there are two to choose from. One for Bezier and one for B-spline. A pop-up message will display in a couple seconds if you hover over the tool, letting you know which one is which.

Tony!

Thanks Tony. I'm familiar with B-splines, but that's not the case here. I simply can't get bezier points to appear.

I open MOT, click on the Bezier tool, draw a path, and I can edit the points. If I go back to the arrow tool the path gets stroked. Then if I want to edit the points, typically I'd right click the path and select 'edit points.' The tool switches to the 'adjust control points tool', but no point appear. If I uncheck 'outline' in the inspector for the shape, the path disappears completely. Also, I can't uncheck 'edit points' if I right click the path again. It just stays checked no matter how many times I try to uncheck it.

Annoying, and I can't finish this particular bit not..

OK, the answer is ... be sure 'show overlays' in the canvas' view menu is checked. Doh!

All is now well ...
