All of a sudden some of the bounding boxes on about 1/3 of my Null layers are invisible. I tried changes the 'handles' in view options, but it doesn't make much sense since most of the bounding boxes are visible. Any ideas?

I think it has something to do with changing the color of the nulls in the layer settings window, but I cannot retrieve the bounding boxes for some reason.

Null objects, though invisible, have a size which is adjustable in their settings dialog and which defaults to [100,100]. If you shrink this down too far, you won't see the bounding box, only the anchor point.

Hi Walter, thanks for your response, but that's not the issue. I can see the shape of the Null's bounding box when I select the layer - the 8 points along the cube are visible, but the box is not visible, just like that of a shape layer. I think the null changed to a shape layer when I changed the color of the object in the Solid Settings panel, and now I can't get the bounding box back.
