What's the trick?! Why my bezier corners keep becoming constrained?

So I'm drawing lines and I'm selecting certain vertices to become Bezier curves and sometimes I can edit the curve, and sometimes not.

Think I must be hitting a variable somewhere.

Any ideas?

Perhaps the tangent handles are too close to the vertex to be seen.
Try right clicking the affected vertices and click "Reset Tangents" (or something like that, I can't remember the name >_>). If that doesn't work, it's possible that you're on 'Smooth' mode where the tangents are calculated automatically.

Also make sure to check if your segments are set to curve, instead of line.

I think you have to press F8 when that happens.I don't know if this counts as a bug,buts been around since forever.
