    Paths and the Direct Selection Tool

    emjayem54

      Problem: I have created a box with the Rectangle Tool and given it rounded corners. I now want to square off the bottom corners of the rectangle whilst retaining the top rounded corners. When I select the Direct Selection Tool I still get corner handles and I can't  seem to add new points on the path. The rounded edges just seem only to want to reduce in size. I always assumed that by slecting the DS Tool I would be able to access the path without corner points appearing?

       

      I first experienced this problem last year (I don't need to perform this task very often) and although I received helpful responses, no one seemed to be able to reproduce and thus answer my problem. If any one can help me with this I would be most grateful. Here is a screen capture with the DS Tool selected object:
