When I click on bezier or pen tools, I don't now get the perameters appearing on tool bar.

Asked by sueneedham

I don't get the perameter toolbar appearing when I want to use bezier curve tool or draw freehand tools anymore. I used to when I first installed version .46 but today they have disappeared. I don't know if I have inadvertantly altered a setting or not. So I cannot select the smoothing option when trying to draw a heart for example.

I have checked that and it is ticked. I get tool controls bar come up with every other tool except the bezier and frehand draw tools. The bar comes up but it is blank.

I have the exact same problem.
I use 0.46 and so does sueneedham (as he wrote in his/her question)

Sorry, that wasn't my username (apparently Obi is one of my friend's user).
And I suppose that I should post with the Information Request rather than question.

I have this problem as well and don't see an answer. The show/hide menu is checked.

Did this question ever get answered. I have the same problem and can't change it to a curve like I saw on you tube. The show toolbar is clicked. I am using an apple computer and it doesn't show up.

Can you help with this problem?

Provide an answer of your own, or ask sueneedham for more information if necessary.
