Adjust off-curve B├ęzier nodes? (by William Adams)
Am I missing something or is it not possible to adjust these?

I'd like to be able to set them to the "Rule of 30" so that each off-curve node is 30% of the distance from the associated on-curve point, 40% away from the next off-curve node, and that on-curve node is 30% away from its associated on-curve node.

Last line should read:

>and that off-curve node is 30% away from its associated on-curve node.

Managed to find: and am able to adjust the off-curve nodes for non-closed paths and edit them as I am accustomed to.

Apparently closing the curve makes them into Quadratic B splines? I still can't figure out how to adjust the off-curve nodes on a closed curve.

Can you draw an open curve, and then constrain the endpoints on top of each other, and on a construction line between the control points?

That's a good question --- still learning, I'll have to try that.

When you are creating bezier with more than 4 pts it will actully creates more than one cubic splines connected preserving g2(c2)-continuity (smooth connection of second derivatives). For free-modifing bezier curve, you should create several 4-pts entities (for example, press B->LMB->move mouse->RMB). Then copy-paste this entity many times and connect points and constrain off-curve points.
