How to get the handles on the starting anchor point(starting point of the path) without leaving the pen tool?
I am able to get the handles by
- Leave the pen tool
- Press Shift+C to get to Convert Anchor Point Tool
- Click on the starting point and draw. This creates the required handles
- Press P to go back to pen tool
But this approach effectively resets the pen tool and I have to rejoin the pen tool with my last anchor point.
Holding down Alt key helps me to invoke Convert anchor point tool temporarily to convert between symmetrical smooth point to a non-symmetrical corner point but this only works with anchor points present inside the path but not at the starting anchor point of the path
