CS: Need head outta monitor, pen troubles - Adobe Illustrator Windows

Is there any way one can enlarge the anchors etc when working with the pen tool. Its so small on my screen, I can hardly see the anchors. I have my head half inside the monitor to see anything, and keep knocking outside the small, what should be boxes, but rather seems to be dots. Also how do I change the blue color, - doesnt work my pink object at all....

    Hey I second those sentiments. Seems by version 11 we should be able to do that. I keep zooming in hoping to somehow enlarge those anchors and vertices.

    Hmm.. I have changed my resolution to 800x600, scrolling like crazy, however this is the only real solution to this strange illustrator-problem. What will the Adobe-people do with future resolutions? The dots will vanish totally.. laughable.. actually. (Miss Corel).

    madkasse:

    to change the blue color, double-click the layer and select another...or, the simpleton way, create new layers until you come across a selection color you like.

    Meanwhile, the Windows OS comes with a magnifying glass built in, it's under the Accessibility options.

    B. Phillippus;

    The windows magnifier seems like a good idea, but unfortunately it magnifies everything to the point of making one dizzy. Mega fast scrolling of oversized pixels. Like a bad video game.

    Maya has a feature that allows you to independently size manipulator handles. You just hit the plus or minus key and your handle scale grows or shrinks. Also you can set the size in preferences for your actual arrows and vertices, etc.

    I think that would be great in Illustrator. Also in photoshop like when you can't see the cursor because of the grey background.
