problem with selecting objects

I am working in illistrator cs3. When I select object with selection tool or with direct selection tool the anchor points on selected object and sqare around selection is not displayed. I can move, erase or change color to the selected object but I can not see which objects are already selected.

Thank you for any suggestions.

RE: problem with selecting objects

Not sure I fully understand the problem, but try this:
ctrl+H hides/shows outlines/nodes
shift+ctrl+B hides/shows bounding box w/'drag tabs'
try toggling these & good luck!

RE: problem with selecting objects

...i think erixwork entry is correct:

view > show edges (control/command + H)




RE: problem with selecting objects

Thanks  Just joined. Had the same problem. Around 50 + hours in on an illustration and lost direct selection ability.Again thanks.
