Somehow my bounding boxes stopped being displayed and when I went into View the setting shows they are turned on when they aren't. Does anyone know what might be going on?
View > Show Edges
If the bounding box is on in the View menu, and it doesn't show. I'd suggest trashing your Illustrator preferences.
Hold Command-Option-Shift (PC: Ctrl-Alt-Shift) down while you launch Illustrator.
