All I want to do is draw a straight line. "Add curve" and it's.. well, curved. It was so straightforward to model with Amapi without opening 100 drop down boxes. Blender by comparison is really unintuitive. The help just says you can do this or that but not how. Any advice?

Edit: Thanks, it's okay now - I had to set the Spine Type to Poly.

    $\begingroup$ Or instead of adding a Bézier curve to the scene, you could add a Path. $\endgroup$ Feb 24, 2023 at 13:16

    $\begingroup$ Easiest way for a straight Bezier curve (for me) is: Add Bezier Curve > Enter Edit Mode, Press V,V then V,L (makes a straight vector curve, then changes handles back to "align"). $\endgroup$ Feb 24, 2023 at 15:35
