When I draw an object in Illustrator, I am not getting the small gray box that shows its dimensions as I draw. Also not getting the green "intersect" tip when I begin drawing at a corner of the document. I'm using Mac 10.8.2. I have both a laptop and a desktop, and the laptop works fine. It's on the Mac Pro that this problem happens. I checked to make sure all preferences are the same on both machines. I updated Illustrator also.
Yes, and the smart guides work fine. I just tried it again, and what seems to happen is that when initially drawing an object, I don't see the info. But once I switch to the move tool and move the object around the measurement labels appear. Can you think of any reason why I don't see the measurement labels when initially creating the object?
