Not much more to this than the subject, why does Write-on sometimes give curved lines, and sometimes give straight lines? It's annoying!

It's just like how the motion path of a layer can be curved or straight, it all depends on the keyframe interpolation. Right click on the Brush Position keyframes to change it.

If you knew all that already and just wondered why it starts out one way or he other, I have no idea.

You change the Spatial keyframe type for a property that contains positional data (other than Transform.position) from within the Layer Panel.

Once, you're in the Layer Panel, ensure that View is set appropriately.

It seems to be that if you set some keyframes and then make the middle ones 'rove across time' that the next lot you put in go straight. Weird, but work-around-able!

Thanks
