I’m cleaning up my mesh after combining multiple primitives and beveling multiple edges. I’m trying to use the knife tool but the square indicating it is on one of the vertices only appears when I hover on the point of origin. Occasionally, it will snap to an edge near the point of origin. When I try to select any of the vertices far away from the point of origin, the knife tool does not recognize them and I cannot left click to begin making a cut. This is true when I toggle the knife snap function on or off. Quitting and restarting blender did not correct my issue.
I am confident there is a setting I unknowingly changed in blender and this is a quick fix.
