Cannot select or move a stroke with the direct selection tool
I created a square. I tried to select one edge of the square to alter the shape. The direct selection tool would not select the stroke. It was a 1 point stroke. No matter which mode I used (outline or preview) it would not select the stroke.
I expect the direct selection tool to be able to select a stroke so that I can move it. This is not happening. Well, it does happen, eventually, but only after about 30 attempts. It should only take one attempt. And, no, changing the the selection tolerance does not help, and "object selection by path only" is not selected. Any help to get the program to actually work is greatly appreciated.
MacOS Catalina 10.15.3
Illustrator 2020 version 24.1.0
This also happens on my computer at work, which is running the same version of illustrator.
