Mask in Vegas - how to select single point?

This has always driven me crazy. Once I create a mask in Vegas, how can I
-Select a single point and move it (not the tangents)
-select the entire mask and move it

Thanks

What I've discovered is that the trick is to click the "Normal Edit" tool after you've created your mask.
Doing this avoids the creation of more points unless you want/need them.
Once you've done this, right-click and choose "Deselect > All".
Click anywhere on the mask to reveal your points.
Click the desired point and move it as desired.
To select and move the entire mask, right-click and choose "Select > All".
Position the cursor on top of any point (must be on a point, not a line) and you should see everything light up.
Move as desired.
Let me know if this doesn't make sense.

yes it does. I really wish there was a hotkey for this though, like using the CNTRL or even double clicking on certain points that would do the trick. I did figure it out in time, but at least this solidifies the way of doing it . Thanks so much.
