No rotate on bounding box for shapes

When I create a circle or square I can only expand or contract the shape. The arrow option to rotate will not show up. If it is an object that I have placed on the artboard, I never have any problem rotating. It seems to only be shapes I create with the shape tools. 

 

No, I haven't turned bounding box off. I can see it just fine, can see expand and contract, just not rotate.

I have closed and restarted Illustrator.

Restarted my computer.

I have reset my preferences.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled Illustrator.

All to no avail...

 

It's ridiculously annoying. Anyone got an ideas on a solution?

 

Thank you to my hero of the future.

Hi there,

 

Apologies for the delayed response. Sorry to hear about your experience. Would you mind sharing version of OS & Illustrator?

I see you have performed troubleshooting which did not help. I'd request using Creative Cloud Cleaner Tool to remove the existing installation and install a fresh copy. Let us know if it helps.

 

Regards,

Ashutosh
