Can't select multiple anchor points with direct selection tool
The Direct Selection Tool does not select anchor points. When the DS tool hovers over object, the outline appears, but no anchor points appear. Neither can be selected and activated. When DS tool hovers over an anchor point, I can move that one point only. DS tool behaves exactly same as Anchor Point Tool. I cannot select several anchor points at once, and move / align / delete / distribute / join them. Win 10.1903 AI 24.0
As per the comment, this can happen due to the accidentally hiding the edges with Cmd/Ctrl + H hotkey (View > Show/Hide Edges).
Please check if this helps and comment back if it does not.

My mistake was hiding the edges. To solve this try Ctrl + H or Command + H or View > Show Edges

Is everything unlocked? I just encountered something similar where with the direct selection tool I could select individual points one at a time but nothing when I clicked and dragged. Turned out to be some layers that were locked that I pasted in.
Any fixes for this?
I tried reinstalling it, and that fixed my issue.
I am having a similar issue. This is forcing me to use an older version.
