The mesh tool will only let me create new mesh points on a path, it will not let me create a mesh point anywhere I want on an object. For example if I use the rectangle tool and create a rectangle it will only let me create mesh points on the path around rectangle...not anywhere in the middle of the rectangle like it should. I should be able to create a mesh point anywhere in the rectangle, but it will not let me.
Is there a setting a might have turned off? Please help, this is important!
Yes in the Illustrator preferences there is a option under Selection and Anchor Display to select objects by the path only uncheck that option.
