Hi All

I've somehow lost the view of my anchor points in Illustrator in one of my drawings as I was fiddling around in outline view. This is what I see now and I need to be able to see the line.  as on the coloured image. Help what did I do??

Sorry guys, I accidentally switched off Show Edges, figured it out all is good now 🙂

To see the anchor points, you should set the preferences:

Preferences > Selection & Anchor Display > Show Anchor Points in Selection Tool and Shape Tools
