Breaking a curve

When you click and drag on a direction handle with the direct selection tool, it moves the direction lines on either side of the direction point, altering the curves of both line segments. However, if you click on a direction handle with the convert point tool, it will convert your smooth point to a corner point with independent direction lines. This means that the direction lines do not affect the line segment curve on the other side of the point when moved, only the curve on the same side of the point is affected.
