    When making Path, Option click NEAR handle should grab handle, NOT make new anchor

      When making a path in Photoshop, if I have the basic Pen Tool, I often use Option on my Mac keyboard to temporarily get the Convert Point Tool, in order to adjust the handle protruding from an anchor point. I find it extremely frustrating that it will INSTEAD lay down another anchor point if I do not click PRECISELY on the end of the handle I intended to grab. Can't Photoshop just grab the handle as long as I am in close proximity AND am holding down Option? Since I AM holding Option, it should lock me out of adding additional anchor points.

      I can't think of anything else I would want to do in this situation, in other words, I don't think it would be in conflict with any other feature.
