    For some reason when I click on some of my 2D objects there are no transform handles visible and the only way I can move the objects is by editing the inspector values.
    What could be causing this??

    Thanks for the help. I just checked the Gizmos and UISprite was unchecked some how. Now I can move the object in the scene view by clicking and dragging like normal. Thanks!

    I'm having the same issue as JEsteras, no UISprite option in my Gizmos. I also can't see the handles on the reflection probes bounding box. Any help would be appreciated.

    My transform handles are present on all my 2d game objects but the ones that have a child game object that has a 2d circle collider attached. If I disable the child game object, with the 2d circle collider, the transform handles appear. Is there any other way to get the transform handles to appear, without disabling the child game object?

    Same here, probuilder was causing it (Unity 2019.4).

    Hello from the Future, July 19 2021.

    For me what caused this issue, was resetting my XR Rig game object.
    Fixed the issue by clicking on center (by the transform buttons) and it turned to pivot.

    Hope this helps any VR beginner's like myself and anyone else for that matter.

    Simply try to close Scene (right click on "Scene" tab -> Close Tab ) tab and then reopen Scene tab again (3 dots icon in the top-right corner of any window, for example "Game" and then choose "Add Tab -> Scene" from drop down menu).

    Thanks, this solution worked like a charm for me!

    In my case, the handles were barely visible and looked like irregularly dotted, thin lines. If I zoomed in hard on them, they'd look normal again, but they aren't far away from the camera and the game is 2D. Reopening the scene window immediately solved the problem.

    Thanks again!

    Had the same issue (handles being barely visible and looking abnormal). Closing the scene tab and opening a new one worked for me. Thanks @ChargedAds !
