This problem appeared all of a sudden. One minute I was working on a file and everything was fine, the next minute the handles appeared, and now they won't go away, even though I didn't select Transform or change ANYTHING in any of my settings! I've since checked my "Extras" menu settings and the ONLY item I have selected to show in there is Pixel Grid. Even when I turn that one item off though, those handles still show around whatever layer or Layer group is selected in the Layers pane. The ONLY way the handles disappear is when I turn OFF the Extras entirely...which I hate to do because those Extras are so usefu!I also tried restarting both Photoshop AND my computer....nada. Still the same problem. This is a very annoying issue, so I'm wondering if anyone out there has any suggestions about how to get rid of it? I suppose I can always do a fresh reinstall of Photoshop but if there's another way around it, I'd rather try other things first. I would really appreciate some input on this issue. Hope someone out there can help.BTW, I'm using Photoshop CS6 on an iMac with OS 10.6.8 installed and plenty of memory. Thanks!
