If you created a straight segment but now want to change it to a curved segment (or vice versa), use the Convert Point tool, found at the bottom of the flyout menu for the Pen tool. Click and drag away from a straight anchor point to convert it into a curved anchor point. Click once on a curved anchor point to convert it to a straight anchor point.
The Direct Selection tool can be used to edit curved segments by first clicking the anchor point within the curved segment, which reveals small directional lines, as shown in Figure 5-8. To edit the slope and/or length of the curve, click and drag those directional lines.
