Gizmo Problem - Doesn't let me select it

Hi,

 

I'm having a Gizmo problem, and it has been recurring for a long time.

 

Problem:

When I select an object, either with scale/rotate/move selected, the corresponding Gizmo appears

 

Great

 

But as I hover my cursor over it, and it clearly shows I'm over it by changing color, and try to click on it. It disappear.

 

It's very frustrating as I try to click on it, and it's gone, and the command window displays this message

"Please select an axis" duhhh I can't cuz the Gizmo is GONE. Then I ended not being able to perform all those functions.

 

Any idea guys?

 

Regards,

Dulerong

Actually guys,

 

I found my solution, it's really weird but in case someone with the same problem.

 

To avoid this:

In 3D mode, Home->Selection then you can see gizmo selection types (scale, rotate, move)

 

Basically the problem I was having is due to selecting the different gizmo then what I intended to do,

 

so like this: type "rotate" but had "scale" selected in that tab.

 

This is not gonna work.

 

Hope it helps anyone like me.

i've managed to fix this problem with manually typing in 3Dmove, 3Dscale, 3Drotate,


For some reason this problem still persists

I just can't select an object and use the GIZMO right away, like I need to type in the command

You need to be in a visual style other than 2dwireframe.

Hi everyone. My problem is that when I change the visual style from the default one (2dwireframe) it seems to crash. I CAN move the mouse... but when I try to change the visual style again from the list above on the left of the window, I CAN'T open the "menu". As well, if I draw a 3d object, then I cannot select it. I can't change the view using teh cube above on the right too. What's my problem. Thanks
