Anchor points are disappearing

Hello,

 

I have drawed a line and selected direct selection tool to move an anchor point to another location, so the lines will be smoother. But the anchor point disappears when trying to click and drag. One solution might be that I should turn off real-time drawing under "preferences" but I can't find this setting in adobe illustrator ipad. Any ideas or help what might solve the problem?

 

PS I have also re-installed the app and checked my adobe version and ipad version for compatibility- this should be ok.

 

Any help would be much appreciated.

 

KR,

Helena

This may be a bug, but I'm not sure.

  • I dragged this point with my finger and it worked as expected.
  • I then hit Undo and tried with my Apple Pencil. The first 5-6 times, it deleted the anchor point. Then I tried moving the two end points and was successful. I went back to the first point and it worked with the Pencil.

 

I hope other volunteers will test this and chime in.

 

If you think it's a bug, you can report it to the developers here:

Be sure to say which tool you used to draw the path.

thank you for your reply.

I have to click the anchor point 5-6 times at least as well, in order to be able to drag the line.

I see that others have ran into the same problem. Unfortunately it seems there is no solution to this. Just to wait until Adobe will upgrade it's app itself..
