I would love to see the control handles larger in size (all of them).  I would also to see the one my mouse floats over become a different color.  This would make picking the handles a lot easier.

 

I use the result buffer control handles quite frequently.  I also frequently go to pick a handle and don't quite get it.  Then I need to go to the reshape tool.

Paul,

 

If you check the Snap Options: Tolerance -- what do you have this set to?

 

And if this is set to something other than (the default) 10 pixels, does setting that help?

 

(Controls should be very easy to click, but if you still have trouble, please post your simple "cube file.zip" where you experience the issue, and let us know which version of OS X you are using.)

I set it to 25 and so far it seems to be easier to select.  Thanks support!

Hi Paul,

 

Ok, great.  Personally 25 pixels would be too big for me --  but as long as it works for you, that's the important part.  (Feel free to try a smaller value if you want.)

So does setting this also effect the snap tolerance?  If so, then I resubmit my request for larger control handles.

Hi Asone,

 

Yes, that currently affects both.  If you have tried the default 10 pixels (or perhaps increase this to 15 - 20), does that work well for you for both?

 

(We will also add a suggestion to see if this can be added for the future.   ;))
