Anchor points not displaying with layer color
My anchor points are not displaying correctly. They are not the layer color and when objects are selected, they are a light gray and barely visible on a white or any color background. I've tried changing the layer color and that doesn't help and have checked any preferences that may have been changed, but still the same issue.
Illustrator v 25.3.1 on an iMac 27" (late 2012, 2.9GHz Quad Core Intel core i5 with an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 66oM 512 MB graphics)
Running MAC OS Catalina v 10.15.7
Please help with any fixes. I've already restarted Illustrator and my computer a few times and no change. This seemed to have started after a recent update to the latest Illustrator version.

Further discovery, if I save an existing Illustrator file with the selection problem as an EPS, then close and reopen that file, the problem is gone. If I then save that EPS as an Illustrator file (2020, latest option), the problem remains gone unless I choose View Using GPU, but at least that's not chosen as a default and can be avoided. This is a very time-consuming workaround, but at least I found one.

I have the same problem, but I've discovered that if I open an EPS file instead of an Illustrator one, the problem is gone UNLESS I choose View Using GPU, then it's the same light gray on selections, but there I can get it to work normally by unchoosing View Using GPU. So it's definitely GPU-related. On Illustrator files, though, View Using GPU is grayed out so I can't choose or unchoose it. The toggle under Preferences>Performance doesn't do anything for me. I recently updated to the latest Illustrator version through CC, and I am using Mac OS 12.2.1. Also, just discovered that if I create a new file, the problem is gone unless I choose View Using GPU, but this doesn't help with the thousands of existing Illustrator files I have.
Does it behave like this with a specific file only? If ye, can you share it?
Does is stay like this when you restart Ai?
Does disabling of GPU help?
Same issue as the above. Updated to Illustrator 25.4.1 Running macOS Catalina v10.15.7. In need of a fix for this issue. Thanks in advance for any help.
I had this very same issue running the same version of Illustrator as you and the Mac OS Mojave 10.14.6 and the solution for me was to turn on/checkmark "GPU Performance" in IIlustrator's Preferences>Performance panel.
I have a similar issue. Do they flicker when you mouse over them? When you change your User Interface color preference in illustrator, do the anchor points change to that color?
