Combining curved and straight path segments

Now that you’ve learned how to draw straight and curved paths individually, you’ll put them together to create paths that combine corner points and smooth ones. Smooth anchor points have directional lines that are opposite each other, 180° apart. Corner points either have no directional lines, only one directional line, or two directional lines that are at an angle that is not 180°.
