llustrator 10 - selection tool problems (attributes ??? ) - Adobe Illustrator Windows

I am having problems with the selection tool in my Illustrator 10. It used to show a frame around the objects selected, with hollow boxes at the corners, as well in the middle of the box surrounding the selected object(s). Suddenly, a few days ago, it started marking only endpoints of selected objects with solid boxes. And it is no longer possible to scale objects with this tool, they can only be dragged.

    Default llustrator 10 - selection tool problems (attributes ??? )

    I am having problems with the selection tool in my Illustrator 10. It
    used to
    show a frame around the objects selected, with hollow boxes at the
    corners, as well in the middle of the box surrounding the selected
    object(s).

    Suddenly, a few days ago, it started marking only endpoints of
    selected objects
    with solid boxes. And it is no longer possible to scale objects with
    this tool,
    they can only be dragged.

    I am sure it is some attribute that has been altered, but I can just
    not find it. Have tried to uninstall and reinstall, but that did not
    help change the way the tool work.

    Any ideas / suggestions?

    Grateful for assistance

    Cool Re: llustrator 10 - selection tool problems (attributes ??? )

    In order to scale shape or text boxes you must double check your bounding box setting under view.

    1. Select View
    2. Select Show Bounding Box
    3. Notice you are now able to select the white nodes and thus scale the boxes
