Hi, don't know if anyone else has had the same issues with the pen tool, but for me it keeps snapping to other objects that may be near it, this is with all the Snap and Smart Guides options deselected so can't for the life of me can't think what is causing it. If I zoom in quite a bit it becomes less of an issue so maybe a tolerance thing?

 

Similarly if I try and add a point to an existing object it seems to prefer adding points to objects stacked below the top object I'm trying to select.

 

Any ideas anyone?

Did you try to restart your machine?

And if that fails, reset the Preferences?

Sussed it after looking through some previous questions! There's an option in 'Preferences > Selection & Anchor Display' called 'Highlight anchors on mouse over'. Rather than just visually highlight this actually snaps to the anchor even when all other snapping options are turned off. Anyway, sorted.
