Where in the Illustrator Interface can I see a count of selected Anchorpoints ?

 

So when I make a marquee selection using the Lasso tool on 2 overlapping anchor points, I can see info like ` 2 anchor points selected ` or something like that.

- Direct select some anchor points.
- Object menu > Path > Simplify
- In the Simplify dialog turn on the preview.
- Get the number of selected anchor points where it says "Original:"

- Cancel the dialog.

The document info panel unfortunately doesn't count only selected points.

Maybe there's a script.

Until then: the plugin VectorScribe does:

Does the Forum have builtin Artificial Intelligence Support, Cuz the above message was marked as the correct answer, before I had a chance to visit the Forum. ?

Moderators can mark posts as correct. As can some other people.

user620,

 

someone marked my answer as correct.

 

I can understand that it may be a bit vexing because you are the person who posted the initial request.

 

Therefore I just unmarked it as such thing.

For the given answers, yours is the best. So I can't agree more with the person who marked it correct.

As a newbie to Adobe forums, I didn't know anyone besides the OP could mark a post as correct. Hence posted a reply about possible intervention by Artificial Intelligence.

 

Besides, I found the simplify menu item very useful in my workflow. Thanks.
