Ok, this could be a dumb question, but I recall in earlier versions, if you made a trim path on a line or shape, you could still just select that one object with out having to go back into the time line or do a drag selection with the mouse. I even tried using the pan tool to adjust the anchor point from the middle of the composition to the actual line itself... the selection still won't happen unless I find that tiny blue point in the middle of the comp or if I actually go in the timeline and select the whole shape layer... What am I doing wrong?
nothing new in that regard in the previous versions:
this is not related to anchor point or where it is.
