Resize handles have disappeared on lines and shapes when selected

Question

Hi,

 

Selecting lines and objects highlights them but WITHOUT the handles allowing resizing. Prefernece box is checked (see image attached).

 

I've tried restarting VW 2023 (Mac OS 13.2.1 on iMac 2019).

 

Any ideas?

To expand on Tom's answer, the 2D selection tool has three modes, the first is No Interactive Resize. It means that if you have that mode selected you will be able to move the object but not resize it, so you will not get the selection handles.  The second and third modes are Single object and Multiple object resize respectively.

 

Check that you don't have the mode pointed to my the orange arrow in the screen shot below selected.

To Pat and Tom,

 

Thank you for the prompt and accurate reply!

 

Worked like a charm.

 

I always wondered what those symbols up there stood for and did.

 

The VW Community is just amazing. A graduate (and undergrad) education in Vectorworks.

 

Thanks again to all.

Just ran into the same surprise. I was playing around with an imported 3d model (Photocatch) and apparently accidentally clicked on the "No Interactive Resize" button. Couldn't figure out what I had done, but, thanks to this group, I found the solution quickly. Thanks for rescuing me again!
