I change between screens a lot when using Illustrator. If I am in the middle of making a path and then try to come back to it the last anchor point only has one handle. Then I have to go and convert it but that repeats the entire process.
For example if I wanted to connect to the below path, hovering over the anchor point would switch to this: but that leaves me with an anchor point and one direction handle. This makes for poor curves There must be a quicker way then having to convert each anchor point no? Thanks!!!
I haven't been able to recreate what you describe. When I leave AI and return, the active path is just as I left it and I can continue drawing by clicking to create the next anchor point. Am I missing something? Seems to work in both CS5 and 6 here.
Oh wow thanks rcaighead! That was really nice of you to post that video! Is there a way to give a user thanks on these forums? Well if there is let me know and I will send the love!
It's not the end of the world, but just a little more time consuming.
If I figure anything out I will let you know!
