Hi

I'm looking for a command to display the normal of a curve. I know that if I select a curve and pick offset, it will show me the normal. Thats not what I want. I'm looking for something like with surfaces, in that when selected the normal is displayed. It should work like an option for the curve in that when checked, any curve you select, it's normal would be displayed. If you didn't want it, you could turn it off.

Curves don't have a unique normal (unless they are straight). The normal will depend on the curvature at each point.

You can use the new graphics handles to display the normal at any selected points on the curve. Select the curve, and pick the point(s) you want. Right-click and choose 'Offset graphic handle'.
