Convert Between Smooth Points and Corner Points

Convert between smooth points and corner points

You can convert the points on a path between corner and smooth points. Using the Convert Anchor Point tool, you can choose to convert only one side of the point, and you can precisely alter the curve as you convert the point.

  1. Select the entire path you want to modify so that you can see its anchor points.

  2. Select the Convert Anchor Point tool.

    To convert a smooth point to a corner point with independent direction lines, drag either direction point.

    Converting a smooth point to a corner point

    To convert a corner point without direction lines to a corner point with independent direction lines, first drag a direction point out of a corner point (making it a smooth point with direction lines). Release the mouse button only (don't release any keys you may have pressed to activate the Convert Anchor Point tool), and then drag either direction point.
