Hey everybody,

So Im trying to move some anchor points around quickly. In the past I've been able to use the pan behind tool to drag the anchor point wherever, but now, for some reason, i cannot click the anchor point. It just deselects my layer, even when it's solo'd. Did I mess somethin up? it used to always work. This is the anchor point of a composition, not single layer.

Picture example:

I want my anchor point to be centered on this chicken nugget but can only accomplish that now by manually changing the anchor point value numbers rather than clicking and dragging the point with the pan behind tool.

Any help would be appreciated!

Just a guess but try View -> Show layer controls

I move a lot of anchor points and sometimes they don't show and this will bring them back up

Hi Spencer. Can u see the anchor point if you go to the Layer Menu and try to change position etc?

Generally a preference reset or trashing the preferences file completely should bring back the anchor point functionality.

Let me know if it works. Mo
