Show Constraints

I'm not sure I understand what's happening here

The point vertical constraints highlighted ligths up other points, aswell as lines

Why doesn't it just highlight other points?

Also, these other points,  why don't they show constraints?

    Because that point belongs to that line, if you had 2 or three lines all attached to the same point, and you want to free up one line. Then that would help you choose the correct constraint to delete

    ok, but why doesn't it show the same constraint symbol attached to the other object?

    It doesn't show the constraint symbol on the other point because it is already showing it on the original point.
    If you don't have constraints showing and hover over the point, it will show the vertical constraint

    What if the original point is far away from this point. You would be inclined to think that no constraints were attached to this point?

    It's not perfect, i still end up deleting the wrong one most of the time. I was used to it becase solidworks was the same way.  But maybe there is a better way? Any ideas for an improvment request?
