A single curve object can consist of more than one curve or shape. Each of these curves or shapes is referred to as a subpath. For example, when you convert text to curves, you often create subpaths. Once converted to a curve, the letter "O" appears as two ellipses. Each of these ellipses is a subpath.
• When you edit a Natural Media stroke, you edit the control path of the stroke. The stroke itself is a closed path following the control path. When you shape the control path, the stroke shifts according to how you edit the control path. If you want to edit the closed path directly, you must first separate it from the control path.
