You do not need the bounding box. It is possible to work 100% of the time and never use the bounding box on any object. In fact, the only reason the bounding box was ever added to Adobe Illustrator is to make CoreldDraw users feel more comfortable (no joke, that's the truth). Seriously, there's only one thing the bounding box does which can not easily be ...

I have the same problem but I've just started making a hexagon and then using the delete anchor point tool on the two sizes to turn the shape into a rectangle then your able to transform it as you wish (as you would if you made a rectangle). Its a little bit irritating but if you don't have the upgrade and haven't got mavericks then thats an easy fix for the ...

I have the same problem i have Mountain Lion and I have the problem with rectangles in the last version of Illustrator. My solution is clone the rectangle and voila! The control handles appear.

I too am experiencing the lack of control handles in the latest upgrade in Illustrator CC and do not want to upgrade to Mavericks. I have reset my prefs with no avail. One option is to place a smaller object on top of the object to transform, select them both and "POOF" control handles.

You’ve come across the Live Rectangle bug which is limited to the MAC versions starting with 10.7 and 10.8, but not 10.9 (Mavericks), see this thread (official Adobe Illustrator Forum): probleme with the handles on new version of AI CC 2014 Since we’ve already experienced some serious problems with the Live Rectangle (snap to grid bug) I’ve decided to write ...

You likely have corrupted your preferences. I would delete them and rebuild the application. It is very unlikely your OS or your graphics card would be the culprit. Find the Illustrator Pref file and delete it, then relaunch. It's also possible that 2 preferences are conflicting with one another. Show Handles, Show bounding box, etc. I'm at work so I can't ...

I contacted Adobe about this issue because I was having the same problem. They said that in order to use the latest version of CC you need to upgrade your OS (operating system) to 10.9. I am on 10.8.5 which is as high as the OS X Mountain Lion goes. This means that you need to upgrade to the OS X Mavericks, which is currently on 10.9.5. I have been ...

On a Mac, cmd + ; On Windows, I think it's ctrl + ;

Control+H in Windows or cmd+H in Mac I won't even say to read the manual... but I will say to click through the menus, its not that difficult to find things like this without asking us. Could even google search but that's probably longer (and less productive) than taking 10 minutes to familiarize yourself with the menus.

I personally hate the pen tool in Photoshop, after becoming good with it in Illustrator. If you do end up having to use it though, and if I'm understanding what you're trying to accomplish correctly, then you'll want to use the Convert Point Tool to accomplish your task. With that tool selected, you can move the individual handles. Say I have this shape ...

View > Show Bounding Box will most likely "fix" your issue. You probably inadvertently turned off the bounding box.
