Developer's Description

Create and edit Bezier curve handles in Adobe Illustrator.
BetterHandles is a plug-in for Adobe Illustrator that combines a tool and palette to make working with Bezier curve handles easier and more powerful:
  • Select multiple handles, and collectively move, extend, rotate, or retract them
  • Extend or retract handles without changing their angles
  • Copy and paste handles
  • Edit points numerically: anchor, in handle, out handle
  • Convert multiple points from corner to smooth or vice versa
  • Automatically extend new handles on multiple points
  • Intuitively reshape path segments, optionally constraining handle directions
  • Use slow-drag to divide the cursor movement for extremely precise moves
  • Equalize a point's handles
  • Add points to multiple curves at their horizontal and/or vertical tangencies
  • Split multiple paths at one or more points
  • Close multiple open paths, retaining endpoint handles or not
  • Remove one or more points, keeping the curve as close to the original as possible
  • Work with connector points (transitions between straight and curved segments)
  • Remove all redundant points on multiple paths
  • Snap to handles, points, or paths clearly and easily â?? without having to use Smart Guides
  • And more!
