[Design]-Unable to add new anchor points to path in XD.

I'm having an odd problem with one of the paths I've created in a recent project. I can remove, manipulate, and otherwise play with the anchor points on this path, but for some reason I can't add any new ones, whether I try double-clicking on the path or using the pen tool. My other paths work fine, and this one was working fine awhile ago.

 

I've tried closing and re-opening the program, duplicating and then deleting the original path, turning off layers, reorganizing layers, etc. Is there some weird setting I'm missing? It's bizarre that this one path would be immune to new points.

 

I attached a video of what happens when I try.

Hi there,

 

We are sorry to hear you are having trouble adding new anchor points to path in XD and thank you for sharing the video. We would like to know a few more details like-

 

  • What is the OS & XD version of your machine?
  • Is it happening with all the files or with a specific file?
  • Have you tried to copy the same object into a new document & share the results with us?

 

We will try our best to help.

 

Thanks,

Harshika

I think I figured out the issue. Apparently I'm too zoomed in to the shapes to be able to add points. If I zoom out, I can add points and manipulate them. It's kind of annoying, because I want to be able to precisely place them, but at least I can add them now.
