Adding an option to increase the anchor point handle size
Adding an option to increase the anchor point handle size, to make them easier to select
The option to increase the size of Anchor Points, size of Direction Handles, and Bounding Box Display size was included in InDesign 2022 release.
This option can be found in the Preferences dialog > User Interface Scaling.
The size can be increased in 4 increments from Small to Large.

Unfortunately, the adjustment is global in that ALL handles and actors grow (or shrink) proportionately. This means that to make the tiny frame handles comfortably sized, all the other handles are now too large!
So, I would say this is still NOT fixed.

They're impossible small to select on a high resolution screen

How has this not happened by now. This is a no brainer to implement, and at the very least, just increase the anchor point size across the board - we don't even need a setting option to vary their size. Their tiny!
I would very much like to see this option. Or at least to have some kind of UI option to allow for more imprecise selection of anchorpoint handles. It is not often that i want to single select overlapping anchorpoints.
I second this! it's important.
Oh my goodness yes please! The people who made this were not over 40. Please make editing more accessible to folks with impaired vision. Have an option to make anchor points nice and big and maybe even be able to change the color so they stick out? Thanks!!
Who ever created the new anchor point handles is a sadist.
I did most simple graphics in InDesign instead of Illustrator for years, because I know the software so much better, but it has become impossible for me.
Is this some secret conspiracy to get people over 50 out of graphic design ;- )

Please please please give us the option to increase the size of vector nodes. They're impossible to work with.
On my old 2k 30" monitor, the curve anchors and handles were tiny and difficult to select. This week I'll be commissioning a new 4k 27" monitor, and am not sure I'll even be able to see the anchors and handles, let alone select them. An option to make them display larger would be very useful and MUCH appreciated.
Yes, make the anchor node bigger, or adjustable.
Yes please, it is impossible to hit anchor points in InDesign on high-resolution laptops (1920x1080 on a 13 inch Windows 10 computer).
All texts and cursers are TINY!
