    Can't select anchor points of some shapes in Photoshop CC 2014

    kd360

      I have a multi-layered file with a number of shape objects. When I go to the direct selection tool and try to click on an anchor point the points simply do not show up. Is there some property that I am not aware of that prevents selection?

          Are you targeting the correct post a screen capture that shows you problem where Photoshop image window Layers Palette and Paths Palette are visible. Example

            Can you upload the psd file.  The Path palette shows a very small triangle path on the right edge of the canvas up some from the bottom of the document. With the direct path tool active and the shape layer targeted even if no point is selected I would expect the see the path outline shown in the Path Palette for the shape layer to be shown in the image window also I see none. Can you see the path outline? Are you  on a Mac I'm on a PC using cc2014 with todays update
