Can No Longer Resize Objects

Can No Longer Resize Objects

Can No Longer Resize Objects

I'm using Illustrator CS3 and right in the middle of adjusting objects on the pasteboard I lost the ability to select the handles for resizing. I can now only select and move, not resize. Not sure what happened. I was resizing a filled box with  the Selection tool and it looked kind of funny when I completed the task. After that there were no more selection handles on the middle sides of any existing elements or newly added ones. I quit and restarted Illus. but it didn't make any difference. I'd certainly appreciate any help here, I'm in the middle of a design project and cannot continue. PLEASE HELP!  Thanks

under the view menu change the "hide bounding box" to "show bounding box" and normally your problem will be solved

Thanks Carlow, never would have looked there. I never went in and modified that option. Not sure what happened but that fixed it. Thanks for your quick reply.
