So in Pixelmator classic you could do all of the path editing tricks you could do in Photoshop or Illustrator. In particular when editing the path points you could hold down Command+Click and move the points of the tangent line independently (i.e. breaking the tangent line). In Pixelmator Pro that appears to be missing!! I was all excited to upgrade, but quickly found that I may just stick to classic until this feature can be added.

So is there a way to do this in Pixelmator Pro? If not any plans to add this relatively soon?

In Pixelmator Pro, to break the direction lines, the modifier key is the Option key rather than the Command key. I believe that's the key used in PS/AI, too.
