Nineblock Software today announced the release of BetterHandles 1.01, a plug-in for Adobe Illustrator that combines a tool and palette to make working with Bezier curve handles easier and more powerful. With it you can: select multiple handles and collectively move, extend, rotate, or retract them; extend or retract handles without changing their angles; edit points numerically (anchor, in handle, out handle); convert multiple points from corner to smooth or vice versa; use slow-drag for precise moves; and more. This release adds CS3-compatibility, a reverse path direction command, and several other improvements. BetterHandles is priced at US$19 for a personal/non-profit license and $29 for a commercial license.
