Pen Tool Anchor Not Visible

Hi All,

 

I am having an issue that when I use the pen tool I can not see any point where I click, however the anchor points are being placed on the artboard, as when I click around I dont see any of the points and therefore cant see what I have done. On the paths tab a work path is being created but just doesn't show up? Has anyone else encountered this?

 

I have attached a screenshot showing a artboard where I have drew a zig zag with the pen tool but I couldnt see any points as I was drawing it - you can see on the right the work path shape that I should see on the artboard.

 

Thanks

Luke

SOLUTION

Hi,

I was able to find a solution to the issue, if you got to Edit > Preferences > General > Reset Preferences on Quit, this should fix the issue. Not ideal if you have a lot of preferences set up but the only fix I could find.

 

Thanks,

Luke

Hi,

 

You can increase the line path thickness showing on the image attached here. It should be minimum 1.5 px thick. Good luck.
