Annoying illustrator problem

Hi guys, quick question

When I select an object with the select tool I can no longer transform it? Meaning I have to select the free transform tool manually (E). Does anybody know how to get it back to normal? I assume I must have hit some keycombo to deactivate it or something…

You need to show the bounding box. ctrl + shift +B (under the view menu)

Thanks!

I had that problem recently too.

Wow, you guys keep the bounding box tool on? I absolutely can’t stand it, too much visual clutter for me. I guess to each their own.
