While I click and drag with the bezier pen tool, I get those nice bezier handles so can shape bezier curves accurately. The moment I close a path, and then select the node-editing tool, i can click on nodes, but i don't get those bezier-rubberbands or handles, so can shape the curves further.
When I convert an object to path, and attempt to re-shape a segment or a curve, I still don't get those bezier-handles anymore.
Might I have accidentally switched off their view? Have tried everywhere, can't seem to find the option. How do I get those back please?
I could happily edit curves in this version ever since it was released, but it just stopped one fine day a few months ago.
FYI, I'm using 0.46-devel on my production-stable ubuntu 9.04 on a macbookpro. Can't change this in a hurry either.
