You may not notice a change when you click Corner. However, when you move one of the handles, you’ll notice the other handle stays locked, creating the cornered affect.
The two handles adjust with the same directional angle. Pull to change the lengths of the handles separately from each other.
The two handles come together to create a sharp cusp at the node.
Both handles constrain to the same length and move in the same directional angle, creating symmetrical curves.
