    Poly handles in Paint Tool

    What's up with the handles in the Paint Tool?  They vanish when you need them?  I was reading that this happens when the color picker tool is open but that color picker opens by default?  This seems to have been around since the first versions of MC 8.  I presume this is a bug but am surprised this has not been fixed yet. 


    Does anyone know what's going on with this?  Is Avid treating this as a feature?  Our lead editor is rightly instisting that we go back to MC 7.0.6 because we use the Paint tool so frequently and it's really unusable for fast editors now.

    And there is another anomaly I see - draw a shape and work on it for a while then the outline of your shape ends up superimposed on the Effect Editor, rather than on the Composer window! Also with the Color Picker open, I think.
