    Ankit: I sent you a video and info of my settings, version and OS. I encourage others to do also because I think it's a broader issue that is NOT affected by preference settings.

    This bug has kept me on Illustrator 2018. I upgraded OSs and graphics card this weekend and decided to upgrade to Illustrator 24.0.1 because certainly they've fixed this bug by now! But, NO, same problem. No matter what I set the Selection/Tolerance to, I still can't select about 70% of the lines--even at 8 px maximum selection tolerance. Only way to grab them is by dragging across them, which won't work with most drawings. Occurs in both views and with both direct selection tools. Makes for a very LONG day. TIM: Can you do screen grabs of your "Selection and Anchor Display preferences" at home and at work and see if something is set differently between the two machines?

    Ashutosh: I am back on Illustrator v22 because I could not get work down be in v23 due to selection issue. However, in the two days I was struggling in v23, I repeatedly tried changing that “object selection by path” setting and it made no difference—maybe the setting isn’t working? Also tried changing the tolerances but it didn’t seem to matter. I could only click-select a line path about 10% of the time. Restarting seemed to help but problem would quickly return.
