Contains cells that define the x- and y-coordinates and behavior of each control handle defined for a shape. A shape will contain one Controls row for each control handle.

Controls rows are named Controls.name and contain the following cells. For more details, see the specific cell topics.

x

Represents the x-coordinate that indicates the location of a shape's control handle in local coordinates.

You can add as many Controls.name rows as you need, assign meaningful names to the rows, and set cell values. To add control handles to an existing Controls section, right-click a row and click Insert Row on the shortcut menu.

You can reference these cells by their row name, which appears in a ShapeSheet window in red text. To assign meaningful names to Controls.name rows, click the row and then type Custom, for example, to create the row name Controls.Custom. You can then reference the X cell using Controls.Custom.X.

The row name you enter must be unique within the section.
