Marker size and position

  • Position (shortcut: W): Select the start and end point of the marker on the parent curve
  • Height: set the size of the marker
  • Offset: choose the distance from the target curve you want the place the marker
  • Flip (shortcut: T): use the flip button to choose the side of the offset
