    How to use the pen tool to draw curved path segments

    Level 7
      Hi, All,

      I use Fireworks 2004. I want to learn how to use the pen tool
      EFFICIENTLY to draw curved path segments, and find it difficult to come
      to grips with it - esp. how to predict (and therefore control) what
      happens when I pull one of the 'handles' to change the shape of a curve.
      Everything seems to be random, very fast and out of my control.

      I have some voluminous books on Fireworks treating the theory behind it,
      plus the Help files of Fireworks 2004.

      But I still find it hard.

      Is there a very systematic tutorial somewhere on the web which I could
      work through to become really confident with this tool? Or at least to
      lay the foundations?

      Thanks for your help.
