Help With Illustrator's Direct Selection Tool
when i select my point with the direct selection tool i can't modify those lines that change the angle.
actually those green lines do not appear on my screen , what can i do to show them up ? thanks

The angles will only show up if you have already made them before using the direct selection tool.
If you already made a shape try using the 'convert anchor point tool': Choose the anchor point of one of your paths and drag your mouse to modify the angle. You can also drag and hold shift to create perfect horizontal, vertical and 45 degree angles.

Make sure to have "Show Edges" on from View or Ctrl + H for the short-cut.
