I'm on Illustrator 25.2.3. This tool is missing. I can't find it anywhere, even when I go to rebuild my toolbar and click advanced - there's no option for this tool. Seems to have disappeared completely.  (Yes, I already looked under the free transform tool.) This update is super buggy on Mac Big Sur 11.2.3.

The screenshot shows the additional touch toolbar of the free transform tool. It will be visible as soon as you select and object and choose the free transform tool.

Hi there,

 

Sorry to hear about your experience. In addition to the suggestion given by Monika, you may try resetting the preferences of the app & see how it goes.

Please follow this help article to do so. Hope it helps.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh

Don't know if you managed to solve this but I've spent around 40 minutes trying to get to the bottom of it, only to discover that people are right when they say when you click on the object then the Free Transform tool, a little popup toolbar should appear (as long as you've selected the Advance toolbar).

However, after following these instructions and tearing what is left of my hair out, I discovered that it was hiding behind my main toolbar, which is why I couldn't see it and why it looked like Illustrator wasn't doing anything.

 

Hopefully this reply will help anyone else searching for it and having the same headache that I've just had for 40 minutes.

Your comment just saved me the 40 minute headache you suffered. My perspective transform tools were also hiding behind the main toolbar. Thank you!
