The Permission Helper tool can tell you what conditions must be met for you to see the close transition if this is a permission problem and not a simple workflow disconnect.

Randall, thanks, that's a great little tool. I have a feeling I'm going to be using it a lot.

It comes in handy, especially if you are helping others project leads learn how to manage their project permissions.
