Lock Drawing Mode for Curves - PPT 2007

In PowerPoint 2007, if you left-click on Home Tab: Drawing > Shapes and then
right click on Line (for example) you can select "Lock Drawing Mode." Then
when you go to your slide you can draw multiple lines. However I can't
figure out how to do this for the "Curve" drawing tool. I can only draw one
curve. Can anyone help?

Jim,
I guess this is a bug, the last I heard it was definitely not fixed with
SP1. Let's hope it will be for the next SP.

As Luc says it's a bug as yet unfixed. The bug is not in Word though and you
can fairly easily create multiple curves there and copy and paste to
PowerPoint. The drawing mode seems to work better in word too so added bonus
