    Odd pen tool behavior in CC 2015

    I use the pen tool regularly in CC 2015 and for whatever reason it's begun behaving oddly today.

    quick question - combining anchor points

    hi all, Probably a stupid question: how can I combine two anchor points which form part of a shape? I know I can drag a marquee around the two points with the direct selection tool. Then, according to the help file, an icon should appear which I can simply click to combine the two anchor...

    How to save Pen Tool anchors?

    Like in the title? I had a very unpleasant surprise after saving my project, reopening it and seeing that all my anchors and lines between them just disappeared! :/ How to save them? Why they're not an object, like in Paint Shop Pro? Don't tell about brush stroke paths (I have them)...
