Need Advice on Points

Hi. I’m using Intaglio 2.9.8

I’m not totally sure I’m using the right terminology. But:

I used the scissors tool, holding down option, to add a point to a path. However, I want that point to be a curved point, with handles. Instead it’s a straight point. Is there some way I can use the scissors tool to add a curved point?

Also, is there a way to convert a straight point into a curved point? And vice versa?

Thanks

On 3.0.1, but I think it already worked before.

You do it in three steps:

–You add the point with scissors option (the point you just added is
blue)
–You dismiss the tool by clicking on the black arrow pointer. The
point disappears.
–You bring the white arrow pointer on the point you just added and
as it turns to a black pointer, you click and you will have its handles

By the way and just in case, if you want the path to have a corner,
you do the same but you option click (as you option the pointer will
turn into a pen)
