    Illustrator bezier question


    Hi--

    Very new to Illustrator so I'm sure this is an easy answer.

    I'm drawing a box with the box tool, dragging the corners to where I want then trying to add a little curve with bezier curves.

    After I draw one handle to get the curve, I can't find the handle on the opposite end to move that one. I can see both handles when I drag the point, but can't grab the handles.

    What am I doing wrong?


    PS -- using CS6 if that matters.

    Thanks!

    True to form, almost immediately after I post the question I find the answer: "hide edges" was enabled. Not sure what this does, so if anyone can provide an explanation I'll be very grateful.
