Is it possible to change the anchor point color? When I select an image, the anchor points practically disapper in a light gray color on my white background. In old versions, the points would be the same color as my selection. This seems to have happened with the latest update for me. Using Mac OS Catalina 10.15.7, Illustrator v25.3.1

Anchor points, when selected have the color of the layer they are on.

What happens if you change the layer color?

I changed the layer to green and no change in the anchor points. 😞 Any other suggestions?

This seems to be not the normal behaviour.

 

The anchor points should have a thin border in the layer color.

  1. Have you already tried restarting Illustrator?
  2. Have you already tried restarting the computer?

Yep, I've restarted both Illustrator and my computer. Attached is another example whree you can see the selection has light gray anchor points. Also attached is a screenshot of my Illustrator preferences, which I thought were correct. Anything here I could change that would affect the anchor points?
