To shape a curve object by moving its control points

1 Select a node with the Shape tool.

Control points only extend from the selected node and from those nodes on either side of the selected node if it is on a curved segment.

2 Drag a control point to reshape the curve.

The control points move differently depending on whether the node they are associated with is smooth, cusp, or symmetrical. This, in turn, affects the shape of the curve.

^ • To move a control point hidden under its node, deselect all nodes on the curve object, hold down SHIFT, and drag the control point out from under the node.
