I've tried everything but motion paths are still not visible (never were).
This is what I tried:
Preferences > general > display > all keyframes (on)
View options > motion paths - checked
Shape layer is selected and also the position keyframes
I'm a bit desparate now, ae is new for me (I'm good with ai and ps)
After effects: 184.108.40.206 / 2015.2 release

the links you sent are broken. can we get a screenshot where the composition is visible and timeline + keyframes are selected?
I would try to reset Ae preferences - Cmd+Alt+Shift + clicking on the App when you launch it
Yes, thank you that did the trick!
great! thanks for the feedback so that others could solve this type of situation too.
