    Bounding box handles disappeared in CS5

    ndearingsylvia

      I must've clicked on something in InDesign CS5 because suddenly my bounding boxes --- both text and graphics --- no longer have handles on top, bottom, or sides.  They're only on the corners (and small at that). 

       

      As a result, the proportions aren't constrained vertically or horizontally when I try to resize.  It goes into diamonds and triangles and other unwanted shapes other than square or rectangle.  For the life of me, I can't get it to restore back to standard bounding boxes with handles where they should be and constrainted vertical and horizontal proportions.  Can anyone help?  This computer is a design doorstop until I can fix this.

       

      Thanks in advance for any assistance!
