Just now updated to 24.2 Mac, using Catalina.

 

Using the selection tool, I can no longer grab the corner of a text box (point type or area type) to change its shape... What am I missing? Gotta be user error... Preference? Please advise as this is quite frustrating.

Thank you Monika. I did need to not try that. Restarted the machine... sometimes that cures a variety of things.

 

With the restart, the app icon for AI is updated and the launch screen looks different. So maybe it was just confused. It seems to have corrected itself.

 

Thank goodness! LOL!
