I'm unable to resize any objects or text box in any document. I'm using Illustrator CS3. Bounding box and edge are already turned on. Could anyone help me please?
They must be locked command control 2.
thanks but It doesn't work
Is it on a locked Layer?
Can you select it at all?
Try Unlock All from the Object menu. Cmd-Opt-2
What resizing methods have you tried?
Ooops I mean command option 2 as larry stated.
You have the objects locked.
Nothing is locked and i'm still unable to resize my objects with the selection tool. I can only use transform/scale, pls help me, I want the short way back!!
And yes I can select it, I can move it, I can transform it threw the transform pannel but I can't resize it with the selection tool as usual and it's really frustrating.
Can you attach a screenshot of a selected object? Are you sure that you're using the move tool? (the black arrow accessed by hitting "v") Is this happening to one object only or everything that you create? In a new document?
You'll have to bear with the rudimentary questions for such a fundamental issue.
Did you perchance turn bounding boxes off?
Otherwise I always prefer S for scale and R for rotate, that way you can mark the centre of scaling/ rotating accurately.
As I've said, bounding box are already turned on.
It happens with any object or any text box in any document, even if I create a new document. I can't resize or rotate with the move tool (black arrow) and I also can't transform objects (moving only one line or one point..) with the direct selection tool (white arrow). The only thing I can do white these tools is select.

Hold Command-Option-Shift down while launching Illustrator.
Do you know the shorcut for a pc because i'm not on a mac?
I wish I did. I can only guess though... Ctrl-Alt-Shift + launch AI. But I know Ctrl-Alt-Shift has other repercussions on a PC at times.
Essentially You want to remove the "Settings" files. I think on a PC they are located directly in the Adobe Illustrator Folder. Try moving the Settings folder to your desktop and then relaunching Illustrator.
Holding Shift + Ctrl + B solution worked for me. Thanks
this solution worked perfectly....I'm back in business....I assume that restarts the program with "factory" settings
Thank you! I had this problem as well and holding "Command-Option-Shift down while launching Illustrator" worked.
^ this right here is the fix. Solved my problem in 2 seconds.
Thank you very much!!! I´ve been trying to fix it all day. I didn´t know what else to do.
Thank you very much... I faced the problem while I was under official pressure. Thanks for saving me.
