DISAPPEARING CONSTRAINT POINTS IN INVENTOR

The green balls that should appear when hovering over a constrianed point as stopped appearing.  Is there toggle or someother way to "turn" these back on?

Attach the ipt file here.

You might also indicate the exact url step where you are in the tutorial.

Hi

 

As JDMather suggested, this is likely due to the Constraint Persistence setting. See Paul Munford's article on this subject at this link:

I hope this helps.
Best of luck to you in all of your Inventor pursuits,
Curtis
