    What are stray points and where do they come from?

      Just curious.

      CS3

      XP2.

      I recently made a drawing incorporating some elements from Inventor (PDFd and placed). After finishing filling in the details, I drew a marquee around the entire drawing and noticed dimensions of the drawing where 10x what it should have been.  I zoomed out and and saw two pairs of points. one pair right, one left, were showing as selected. I tried selecting just the points and could not. After re-selecting only my drawing, they would show up.  Its like they were grouped but not.

       

      Anyway, going to select/ object/ stray points and deleting them solved it.

       

      What are they and where did they come from?  Obviously Illustrator recognizes they can be there because of the built-in menu allowance.
