Is there any way to straighten out the default Bezier Curve? By default it looks like this: Bezier Curve
What I end up doing is selecting the left control handle and rotating by 45° to make the curve straight. Is there any easier way, a keystroke?

Method one:

SY0

This flattens the handles on the Y axis (scaling by 0), however it will distort the rotated handle a little bit:

Method two:

VV, then VL

This sets the handle type to vector (which makes connected control vertices straight) and the back to aligned (the default).

I really like the second method. –  David Jul 7 at 20:21
    
I would set both handles to vector. –  pink vertex Jul 7 at 21:01
    
@pinkvertex I would too ;) (and I did, in my gif..). Both handles are selected by default, so I figured it wasn't necessary to include that step. –  gandalf3 Jul 7 at 21:02
