I'm not new to Illustrator and I've already done some research. I'm unsure why my problem is occurring and it's more or less a convenience issue.
When I am using the pen tool in Illustrator CC, a preview of where my line is and where my point is being dropped doesn't show up until after I've made the drop.
Unsure of exactly how to word that any better other than a preview guide of my path and hover point before clicking.
I have already tried hiding/showing edges as well as dipping into preferences to enable rubber band (but it was already enabled).
