Resize vs. Rotate with Bounding Box

Since upgrading to CC, I find it very hard to resize an image with the bounding box on smaller object, without having to zoom in. It always defaults to the Rotate function. Even if the resize arrow comes up, once you start moving your cursor, it starts rotating the object. This has been super annoying to our whole design team ( I checked ), as we rely upon that function hundreds of times per day! It's really inconvenient to have to zoom in or opt for the transform box every time you want to just resize something.

Is there a fix for this? Help!

I have personally expressed this to the Illustrator team myself at a round table and I know others have expressed this to them as well. As higher resolution monitors pose challenges with UI scaling (we really need responsive UIs on desktops) the Illustrator team said this was one of the top items in their list they were trying to find the right solution for.

As for a solution, I can tell you I find myself now grabbing the transform tool rather than relying on the default bounding box with the Move tool. Then if I put my cursor on a corner, when I press the CMD key (I'm on a mac) it grabs the corner rather than giving me a default rotate feature much more accurately than the default bounding box view does.


This is NOT a solution, but a habit shift of mine until a better solution is realized.

Bringing this thread back from the dead because four years later I now have the same problem. Anyone find a solution vs a workaround?
