I am using Illustrator CS4. For whatever reason the hand

Customer Question

thanks. I am using Illustrator CS4. For whatever reason the hand tool is the only tool that shows up as I am working. For instance, if I click on the select tool it appears as the select tool icon while I move it over the tool bar but then becomes the hand tool when the icon is over the art board. How can I remedy this?
