To get around this problem with the fat lines when a polygon or line is selected, I drag the vertices to a reasonable arrangement, then click away from the object to remove all the fat stuff. Then I re-select it and make adjustments.

OK - this is an ADE issue - I am not sure I have control over the size of those handles since they are generated by the graphics engine. Also they are only present if you have the ProKey as I recall.

It seems that the GP Editor brings into focus the use of much smaller objects than ADE is used to handling
