pen tool issue

Very simple question, thanks in advance.

I made a curved line with the pen tool, a few anchor points.

Then I was creating some text at the bottom of the page.

Now, I need to continue the curves I was doing before...I cannot activate the last anchor point to start from there without messing things all up. I want that anchor point to be a curved anchor point.

Thanks.

What is it you are trying to do, then? Are you saying you want to make a anchor a curved point from a corner point? You can use the Convert Anchor Point Tool (the little arrow looking thing in the pen dropdown) to drag on the point to make it a curve - may need to do some pulling and such to get it back to where it way - make a copy and paste in front if you're worried about screwing it up.

Save early. Save often.

When you use the pen tool, then leave the pen tool, then come back to it you cannot use the last anchor point you were previously working on.....without doing something that I am missing.

When I try to activate the previous anchor point to start from that point it is always an endpoint.
