Hello all, I'm having issues with adding anchor points, adjusting anchor points and subtracting anchor points.

Upon upgrading to cc 2018, the anchor points seem to be very finicky. Today I kept getting the error:

“please use the add anchor point tool on a segment of a path”

I know what this means, but before it felt like the program knew what I was intending on doing. Now, unless I am zoomed in really really close I'll get that message. I work pretty fast and this hasn't ever been an issue in the past. Anyone else experiencing any similarities?

Thanks in advance!

Not sure if this is what did it for me, but it was helpful. I don't seem to have the issue anymore, thank you!

Toggling this view (CMD + E) seems to have resolved for me as well. Quite quirky...

Thanks for the tip, Barbara Ash!

I don't have that icon, but I did select "view using CPU" and it fixed the issue for one path. But I still have a rectangle I can't add an anchor point to with the tool. This is SO LAME. I'm getting sick of Adobe's unusable software. They've created such a bloated mess of extra features, that the basics sometimes don't work. How hard can it be? Create rectangle. Add anchor point. What's the problem Adobe?

I literally had to copy the recangle into a new document, add the anchor point, then copy back into the original doc.
