Swirl Tool is Missing - Adobe Illustrator Windows

When I first loaded my Adobe Creative Suite Premium that includes Illustrator, I had a swirl tool. It has since disappeared. Any idea how to recover this tool? My box, circle, star, and other tools are still available. Only the swirl tool is missing. Thanks!...

    Bridget, see FAQ #2, remember to close Illy while you are at it.

    Bridget:

    I don't think there is a swirl tool in CS2. There is a Twirl tool (under Warp tool) and a Twist effect. steve

    Perhaps Bridget means the spiral tool?

    I don't know where it is in AI 11 and 12, but in AI 10 it flies out of the line segment tool.

    The Spiral tool is under the line segment tool in CS and CS2 as well. Since Bridget did not list any of the other tools in that stack in her set of available tools, my guess is that she just forgot which stack it was in, and was looking under the rectangle tool instead.

    But if it has really vanished, then deleting the Prefs would seem to be advised.

    Could she mean the "twist" tool?
    That disappeard from the tool bar with CS (as I recall).

    On the other hand, rereading her comment does imply that she is talking about the spiral, so forget this comment.
