Spline with trough points, even in editing, maybe with Bias handles?

Hi there,
I am having every once in a while problems when creating a spline with trough point.
Usualy I am roughing out my shapes and then modify the controll points into my desired
shape.
The problem is that while editing the controll points are not on the spline anymore, but outside
which makes it tough to get the desired shape especialy if you are working with a network of
splines.
The thing i am dreaming of would be splines which keep the controll points on the spline and
super exiting would be to have bias handles for each CP.
Is there any plans to implement such a kind of spline?

Best regards
Heiner

Hi Heiner, in the future I do want to make a way to edit the "through points" later on probably by some extensions to the history function.

For now though it can be best to delete the current curve and redraw a new "through points" curve through your new location.

Hi Michael,
good to know that it is on your list already!
For the time beeing I work with a technique similar to what you suggested.
Its working well but as you can imagine its quite time consuming when you
have to redraw instead of just doing your corrections.
Best

I agree this would be very useful feature to have in Moi.

In ViaCAD I use these interpolated curves nearly all the time and having the tangency handles at each end of the line is incredibly useful.
