    Flatten control point handles

    Jonathon P

      Hi Adobe experts and charitable types :-)

       

      I am working on some type at the moment and wanted to use the anchor points and control handles as an effect in the final artwork.

      I tried using "Show Bounding Box" after flattening the text and did a screen capture to Photoshop.

      Using this method the anchor points are visible, but unless you select particular anchor points with the direct selection tool,
      the control handles are never visible. I would also have to import it back to Illustrator and use live trace, which I don't think would work very well...

       

      Is there a way to easily convert Illustrator's guide marks and control handles to artwork?

       

      Any suggestions greatefully appreciated!

       

      Many thanks :-) J
