Can I resize image boxes with the displayed handles as the User Manual suggests I can, when creating a book in Aperture 3 using the Formal Theme (with the beveled mask) and in Edit Layout mode?  I can move the box with the yellow guidelines, but those handles will not move to allow me to adjust size.  If I delete the box and add a photobox, I can resize, but I loose those nice beveled masks!

Well I tried on my wife's MB and it worked fine, but keeps the same aspect ratio. Nearly there. I tried the local Apple outlet, but they had just taken Aperture off the demo machine .
However, I have discovered that I can use the "right click" option for 'photo aspect ratio' and it will resize the box to accomodate my pictures.  By fiddling I can select an alternative ratio and/or picture and change the size of the frame up or down and try to get an appropriate size and ratio, e.g. if I have a small landscape picture, I can pop in a bigger square picture (it gets cropped) then choose a portrait mode (cropped differently) then pop in my landscape picture (still cropped, but bigger size), then use the option 'photo aspect ratio', I get it uncropped and bigger.  Not a really satisfactory work around, but better than nothing. 
By combining they fiddling with aspect ratios and the pinch/squeeze routine - on the MB (or via Lion and a track pad I assume) - I should get there.
Pity those pesky handles don't work!!
Thanks folks for the help
