# Adding segment to Bezier curve

When I attempt to add a second segment to a Bezier curve, it creates it very small and folded back on itself, almost like a circle. I create it by selecting the end point of the first curve and then Ctrl + LMB. I've tried this is 2.77 and 2.78c and get the same results so it's obviously something I'm doing wrong. Trying to find the new end point is difficult and when I do hit on it and drag it away, it generally wanders off the flat plane. Thanks.

• Try changing the handle type of the newly created segment to Vector from the toolshelf. Also check if the new curve is closed from the Properties Window in the Object Data tab – Duarte Farrajota Ramos May 14 '17 at 13:32

Maybe you want to use the Extrude operation. Select the last control point on the curve and hit e. You can then move your mouse around to choose where the new control point will go.
