Hi - I am working with some objects in IA, and I want to reset the bounding box(es). When I click on Transform, the Reset Bounding Box option is grayed out : (
What kinds of objects?
Polygons (6 sided), squares. I can SEE the bounding boxes, and I can make them go away/return. But when I go to Transform, the Reset Bounding Box option is grayed out.
You cannot reset bounding boxes for shapes like rectangles, ellipses, polygons and lines.
You need to expand the shape: Object > Shape > Expand Shape, to reset the bounding box.
Yay, Ton! It worked, you are a genius. Thanks a million!
Glad to hear that helped.
I was working with a rotated and stretched out hexagon and 'Expand' still didn't let me reset the bounding box. When I went to 'Object' ===> Compound Path' ===> 'Make' the bounding box reset immediately and when I checked the 'Reset Bounding Box' was no longer greyed out in the menu.
This worked for me! Thanks!
I used to be able to reset the bounding box on every kind of object. Why would Adobe remove this functionality? I don't want to be forced to expand my strokes just to reset their bounding box. I shouldn't have to do that when I never had to before. Very annoying when Adobe continues to break things that were working fine before 😠
If it is a shape you need to Object > Shape > Expand Shape to reset the bounding box.
It will be there if you made changes and created and different angles. For rectangle you need to expand . In this example it is a line.
Will be helpuful to give us screenshots!!
hello, can some one help me with this the above image? I cant transform the scale. Tried with reset bounding box and expand shape but nothing happen. 😞
