“Add Anchor Point Tool” doesn’t work for me

Created the forma del triángulo, pero cuando quiero agregar un nuevo punto de anclaje usando la “Herramienta Agregar punto de anclaje”, recibo este mensaje: “Utilice la herramienta de punto de anclaje en un segmento de una ruta”, lo cual, por supuesto , I do. Exactly as shown in the video. Ideas? Thanks.

Selecting, adding and deleting anchors

To select, move, and delete individual anchors, use the Direct Selection tool. The easiest way to select a controller and activate control lines is to click on an anchor point with the Direct Selection tool. When you hover over an anchor point, the Direct Selection tool cursor displays an open square.

Para eliminar puntos de ancla manualmente, haga clic en la herramienta Eliminar punto de ancla en el menú flotante de la herramienta Pluma y luego haga clic en un ancla para eliminarla. Alternativamente, puede seleccionar el ancla con la herramienta Selección directa y presionar Eliminar (o Retroceso).

Para agregar un punto de anclaje, seleccione la herramienta Agregar punto de anclaje en el menú lateral de la herramienta Pluma. Haga clic en cualquier parte de una ruta para generar un nuevo ancla. El nuevo punto de anclaje adopta los atributos (curvos o rectos) de los anclajes que definen la ruta en la que hizo clic. Por ejemplo, si hace clic en un segmento de línea recta con la herramienta Agregar punto de anclaje, creará un nuevo punto de esquina recto.

As of Adobe Illustrator 2022, adding an anchor point to a line is quite simple. Draw a shape with the Pen tool, then click anywhere on the path. You will see a small plus sign to indicate that the tool is configured to add points. Very easy!

If you want to subtract points, it can be a bit tricky. You can easily press the “-” and “+” keys on your keyboard with the Pen tool selected to switch between subtraction and addition. Although the Pen tool adds points by default, changing modes with these shortcuts actually changes the tool. Switching from subtraction to addition will change the Pen tool. You can score points, of course. But Illustrator actually switches to the Add Anchor Point or Delete Anchor Point tool, instead of staying on the Pen tool.

If you want these tools to always be visible, you can click Window > Toolbars > Advanced. The Add Anchor Point Tool will be added to the toolbar next to the Pen Tool.

In general, the Pen tool is advanced enough that you don’t need the Add or Delete tools most of the time. With the default Pen tool, you can click anywhere on a selected shape to add an anchor point. You can also delete an anchor point by clicking on it.

You can temporarily override this all-in-one feature by holding down the Shift key while creating a new shape. This allows you to create an anchor point for a new shape without accidentally adding one to an existing shape. Just be sure to release the Shift key before making your second point, to avoid the Pen tool being limited to only lines on the axis.
