  • My move tool does not work in illustrator. My arrow shows up when I move around in my tool bar but when I go to my design and artboard I get a hand and a fist that will not let me enlarge or decrease my object. Please help.

When you say "Move" tool are you referring to one of the Selection tools or even the Hand Tool? Since you're talking about enlarging or shrinking objects it actually sounds like you are talking about the magnifying tool. If you are trying to access that using the spacebar then you will get the hand tool which will move the page around. If you hold down the spacebar with the Command (Mac) or Control (PC) also pressed then you will get the magnifying tool. If you add the Option (Mac) or the Alt (PC) key to the group then you will get the reduction tool.
