Using blender 2.90.1 i'm trying to make a knot using a bezier curve. Suddenly I can no longer edit my bezier curve. In edit mode the handles are not shown (see screenshot). My overlays are turned on and I restarted blender multiple times without a succes. I also tried copy pasting in a new blender file but this also didn't help.

Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Edit: here is the blend file:

In edit mode: the handles are not shown. I can't edit it

    $\begingroup$ Just looked at it in 2.83. Try using <ALT> H in edit mode and see if they appear. $\endgroup$

As John Eason and Nathan said in the comments: unhiding in selection mode solves the problem.

In case others have the same problem here is how to solve it: first select your bezier curve, then go to edit mode and press A to select everything. To unhide press Alt + H
