why am I having so much trouble selecting anchor points. I never had problems in much older versions of Illustyrator. 

 

I increased the tolerance in the preferences and enlarged the anchor point size. That doesn't make any difference. I don't understand, I hover the curser/selection tool over the anchor point, in the middle of, next to, all around and one out of five times I actually select it. What is different??? Is it because I'm old? I can see what I'm doing, it's no different than the three decades I've been using Illustrator. 

 

It drives me nuts.

Probably you are too old, who knows.

 

But hopefully this is not the main reason why you are facing these issues.

 

Which version of Illustrator are you using? What operating system?

Calucci Art,

 

Albeit no answer to the actual question, how about Smart Guides?
