I am working on adjusting a leaf shape drawn with the pen tool in Illustrator CS5. On the inside corners of the shape, I see two handles, but one is on top of the other, and I cannot move each handle separately. Is there a way to separate the two handles so I can adjust each side of the shape? See the yellow elipses (handles inside).
Thanks for any help you can offer—this is making me crazy!
O.k., I'm not exactly sure what made it work today, but after having closed down the file & Illustrator overnight, I tried again to adjust the handles on those anchor points.
Using the convert anchor point tool would change between a smooth & corner point, but when it was a corner point, I could still not move the handles independently.
I tried another approach (which did not work yesterday) before trying Jacob's suggestion; I used the direct selection tool to drag the path so that two separate handles at the point would be required to make the shape. I was then able to adjust the handles to achieve the shaping I was looking for.
I'm posting this in hopes that anyone else encountering the problem will find it helpful.
Thank you all for your helpful suggestions!
