I'm having an issue in the latest illustrator update. I want to add a radius to a single corner on a shape, but the direct select tool won't show that the anchor point is selected and doesn't display the rounded corner icon. The icon appears using the regular selection tool, but it's on all four corners of a rectangle so editing a single corner on it's own isn't possible. Has anyone else had this issue?
Do you have bounding box showing? View > Show bounding box
Also do you have smart corner widget showing..? View > Show corner widget
What OS are you running?
If the problem continues perhaps post your issues here: https://www.adobe.com/products/wishform.html
Thanks for the help. It was my own error.

Nevermind. I somehow had hide edges on and that's why I couldn't see it.
No problem, it is normally just something simple. We all do it 🙂
try edit prefernces - selection anchor point & turn of object selection by path only
How did you solve it?
According to the OP, he had Hide Edges showing in the View menu. Use the keyboard shortcut Cmd(Ctrl)-H to toggle between Show/Hide Edges.
Thanks alot. Had the same issue
Thank you, thank you, thank you. Hide edges. Who would have thunk?
View> Show Edges or Ctrl + H
I had the same problem not seing any anchors with the the Direct Selection Tool. However not Showing edges was the solution but Cmd + H!
Cmd+H is the shortcut for Show/Hide Edges.
Thank you so much for posting your solution, I was beating my brains out trying to figure out why the direct selection tool wasn't working all of a sudden. 🙂
all of your comments is not working for me.. it's always the same and that for years now.... why adobe don't just freakin' go and fix it... or what for do we pay? always if I create a few icons (what is quite normal for an animation clip) this corner widget stops working..
