Since Illustrator's upgrade last night, I am unable to resize text or objects using the bounding box handles/anchors. I can move objects, but can't resize. Photoshop remains unchanged, thank god.

 

What changed in Illustrator and how do I resize in this brave, new world?

 

I have tried hiding the bounding box and then showing it again, but no luck.

 

Thanks all! I appreciate your help.

The question is not about checking out the preferences, but did you reset them?

You can try by renaming the folder as described in here: https://helpx.adobe.com/illustrator/using/setting-preferences.html

Have you tried resetting the Preferences? Also does the Scale tool work?

Yes, the Scale tool works. I checked the Preferences and Selection and Anchor Points. Show Anchor points is selected and Highlight Anchors on Mouse Over is also selected. Is there something else in Preferences that I should be checking? That seems the most logical place for the fix.

 

Thanks for your response, by the way.
