    Hi,

    The little box handles that allow to resize an object with the selection tool (black arrow) are deactivated. Before trying to reinstall Illustrator to see if it's a bug, has anyone got an idea to turn them back on ?

    TXS!

    I have this problem almost every day in Illustrator CS3. I find that switching to the scale tool and then back to the selection tool ought to do it.

    (I'm assuming you're not having bigger problems here, and it's just a random disappearance of the handles.)
