Awakening the Input and Output Text Fields

When you enter the Curves dialog box, you may notice that you cannot enter Input and Output values into the text fields (Figure 3-11). That's because neither of the end points on a new curve is selected. So, how do you input values? Well, you could either move the curve or click the points at the end of the curve, or you could—and this option is much more elegant because it doesn't disturb the curve—press the Ctrl key as you then press Tab. The action selects the shadow anchor point and allow you to enter values in the Output and the Input text fields.
