I'm sure this is a noob question and will appreciate both direct help and a pointer to what I should have read.
In Illustrator CS4 on my desktop computer, when I place a PNG file, with Link unchecked, it shows up with open square handles on the corners and sides, so that I can resize the image by dragging the handles.
On my laptop, when I place the exact same file, again with Link unchecked, it shows up with anchor handles on the corners, so that I cannot resize the image by dragging the handles.
As far as I can see, everything is the same. Obviously I'm missing something. What is it, please? And where should I be reading about things like this?
I needed to set Show Bounding Box in View. No idea how that ever got unset. Thanks.
This sounds like it's just a matter of "Show Bounding Box" (I think it's under the view menu)
yes it is .. thanks a lot
