Displaying a Shape’s Control Points
There are several ways to display the control points of a shape to allow point-by-point
editing in the Canvas.
To show a shape’s control points
Do one of the following:
Select the shape to edit, then choose the Edit Points tool from the 2D tools pop-up menu
in the toolbar.
The control points appear.
Choose the Edit Points tool from the 2D tools pop-up menu in the toolbar, then select a
shape in the Layers list or Timeline.
Double-click a shape.
Control-click a shape in the Canvas, then choose Edit Points from the shortcut menu.
Note: Overlays must be enabled in the View pull-down menu (or the View pop-up menu)
to see the control points and spline of a shape. In addition, if Handles are turned off in
the View > Overlays submenu (or the View pop-up menu), you cannot see a shape’s Bezier
or B-Spline control points when editing. When editing shapes, make sure that Handles
are enabled (in the View pull-down menu or View pop-up menu).
After you display a shape’s control points, select control points to edit them.

While editing the control points of a shape, you can select another shape and remain in
control point-adjustment mode. This allows for quick modification of multiple shapes’
