OK what gives here with Corel's so-call Pen Tool. First there's almost NOTHING out there in terms of tutorials etc. Plenty about the Bezier tool but truly hardly anything about the Pen Tool

How on earth do you change the node's direction? This is SO frustrating! I just wanna control this *** but I can't. In Adobe PS it's simple, just hit ALT and you're back to 0 angle. In Corel I read somewhere that you double click the last node......yeah that ends it alright but when you go back to continue at a different angle it goes back to the same angle all over again so it's literally useless.

Please tell me someone what am I doing wrong here.
