Odd black appearance when selecting two paths in succession
Mac OS 10.14.6; Illustrator 24.2
When I select two paths/strokes with the direct selection tool in succession, using the shift key to add the next path, the first path displays as a solid black path and obscures the anchor points. I often need to see those anchor points.
I have never seen those Align options before and that solved the issue. Thanks so much for pointing this feature out to me.
This could be a bug related to a recent Key Object Bug. Hotfix is coming!. Meanwhile you have to open Align panel and change the Align To option to something else manually :(
