How do I select an individual vertex point in a shape layer or mask?

At the moment if I create a shape layer or mask and then do something else, the only way I seem to be able to reselect a specific vertex point is by adding a new vertex point... then deleting it... and only then can I select the vertex point I actually want to move.

I made this short video to explain more clearly my problem:

Many thanks for your time, Leao

Two ways -
1) Select the Shape Layer's Path property in the Timeline
2) With the Selection Tool selected, select the Shape Layer either in the Timeline or the Comp Panel, then hit CTRL and mousedown on the layer. Release CTRL and click on a vertex to select it.
