Selection Tool - not showing box when shape is selected?
When I am using the Selection Tool, it doesn't show the box it did before round the selected shape. So I can't alter the shape.
It seems to be filled in green corners exactly like the direct selection tool.
I have closed Illustrator and opened it again.
Can you please check if the option to show bounding box is ON on your system?
In Illustrator open view menu and look for option “Show Bounding box” or “Hide Bounding Box”. If it says “Show Bounding box”, Select the option and check your workflow.
Hope this solves your problem.

when i'm using direct selection tool, corners box not showing. show edges is on, show bounding box is on but it can't help. I'm attaching an image. please see the image and help. thank you
same problem, also not showing points selected with direct selection tool (though you can still move them with direction pad) - show bounding is on
Show Bounding Box option fixed it for me. I must of hit the wrong quick key and turned it to hidden by mistake Thanks.
Hi, yes that works, thank you very much.
Just select and copy your entire artwork (cmdA, cmdC). Open a new document and past it there (cmdN, cmdV.)
Unfortunately that hasn't resolved the issue, it was on show bounding box, so that didn't make any difference. Have you any other thoughts, this seems to be working on some shapes, but not others.
