I would like to have just Paint Seed Points show but not all the other items such as arc and circle center points.

Gets very confusing and 'messy'.


Is there a way to have the Paint Seed points show without all the other non-printable items showing also?

I've tried checking/unchecking 'Show Non-Printable Items' in VISIBLE ITEMS. It's seems to be all or none.

Maybe try drawing paint while on a specific layer and then they may show separately from other non-printable items?? Haven't tried it, but I use that when I want certain symbols or other things to show, but not everything related.

I paint seed point shows the exact point that the paint is generated from. It comes in handy if you are copying paints. Then it generates in the copied space correctly. In earlier versions they were visible automatically.


If you have seed points showing, you can only manipulate paint from the seed point.
