I'm working in Illustrator 10 on a Mac, 10.3.9.
When I use the selection tool and click on an object or text block I no longer get the bounding box. If I select a circle it is selected as if I were using the direct selection tool. I can no longer scale an object using the selection tool or decrease the size of a text box. Any insight into this would be great. I don't know if I accidentally reset one of the preferences or if something has gone buggy with the program.
thanks in advance.
