Illustrator Live Corners is a 17.0.0 version feature.

Instead you can always use Round Corners from menu Effect > Stylize

Adobe Illustrator CS6: Rounding One (or Two) Corners

  • Select a rectangle.

  • Select the Scissors tool and click two opposing corners to separate the single rectangle > into two independent right angles

  • Select one of the right angles, and use Effect > Stylize > Round Corners to round one corner

  • Choose Object > Expand Appearance

  • Repeat steps 3 and 4 on the other right angle.


My illustrator is CC 2015

and what you can do is go to view > show corner widget


Check that the object you are working on is not too small for using this feature. I was recently frustrated by the same issue only to realize when I scaled up the object, the live corner indicators magically appeared again!


just press ctrl + H

                                                            x                                                                     v
