Hi,

I reach for the default curve tool (Control point curve) as I wish to start tangent then just click one or two points around this black curve and end tangent on the next straight line segment. It has no start and end tangent options though, also it is not the tool for best fit through the locations clicked, is it ?

I opt for ‘Curve through points’, placing points at 4 places along that curve as well as the ends of the two red lines, I am unable to change degree 3 to 2, I select degree=3 with mouse, type 2, hit enter and it still has degree=3, as such that can give me an S curve, I need a degree 2 curve., or at least it would assist in giving me a smooth simple curve I thought.

This sees a curve made but it goes exactly through those points, I want it to take up best path so as to give the most perfect smooth curve, unless I just happened to place my points perfectly for such a perfect curve, doubt that, and curvature Graph confirms my doubts.,… Also it doesnt start and end tangent on the red lines.

So what is best method.

I would like a tool that had start and end tan options, and the task of best fitting the degree 2 type curve through wherever user clicked the cursor., not necessarily going through the clicks but getting as close to them as was possible to make a perfect deg 2 curve.
