This is a page to track the reviews of the official tutorials for the 0.91 release:

Basic tutorial

  • Reviewer: ryanlerch
  • Notes: tutorial good

Advanced tutorial

  • Reviewer -- Ryanlerch
  • Notes
    • this section on nodes doesnt mention auto-smooth. (do we want to add it here?)

A node can be made cusp (Shift+C), which means its two handles can move independently at any angle to each other; smooth (Shift+S), which means its handles are always on the same straight line (collinear); and symmetric (Shift+Y), which is the same as smooth, but the handles also have the same length. When you switch the type of node, you can preserve the position of one of the two handles by hovering your mouse over it, so that only the other handle is rotated/scaled to match.
