the move tool has stopped changing to rotate/resize when i place it near the corner of an object, anyone know why this might be? ive been googling it but havent found anything yet.

By move tool do you mean the selection tool?

and aren't rotate and resize (scale) two different tools in IllusTrator?

Are you sure you're not confusing Photoshop and Illustrator?

yeah its the selection tool. i used to be able to basically free transform an object like in photoshop with the selection tool, but its not working now. im guessing i hit some sort of short cut or something.
