When I select objects in Illustrator, I am no longer able to resize them by dragging the anchor points. The box around the selected object doesn't even appear anymore, so I have to use the resize tool instead. Is there a setting or preference that will give back the ability to resize by dragging?
is Show Bounding Box your issue?
Had this issue as well, thanks.
Shortcut on Windows: Shift+Ctrl+B.
On Mac it's the same, but Cmd instead of Ctrl.
The command is in View > Show/Hide Bounding box
thank you, I somehow lost mine too. saved me a lot of hair pulling
Another thank you for that answer. There is a LOT to learn, but I am doing it!
