gizmo disappeared completely

I recently installed Maya 2022, when I started working my gizmo is not coming in any hotkeys. I can see the icons are changing for W,E,R but gizmo is not coming. When I select Translate, Rotate or Scale from channel box then gizmo is coming. Because of these I can't edit mesh in edge or vertex mode. Is there any option turn on gizmo displayed.

Hi,

 

It is a bit hard to understand what might be going on from your description so my first suggestion would be to reset your Maya 2022 preferences.

Hi,

 

The next thing to check would be your graphics card / drivers to see if you are using the correct ones for your version of Maya.

Also, some integrated graphics cards perform better in Maya if you set Windows > Preferences > Display > Viewport 2.0 > Rendering Engine to DirectX 11 and restart Maya.

The other thing that make gizmos vanish is put manipulation in tweak mode. Just turn off tweak mode again and the gizmos are back.

If the transformation gizmo isn't appearing with Maya 2022 hotkeys (W, E, R), try toggling tool display by pressing W and left-clicking in the viewport. Additionally, check for a "Reset Tool" option in the tool settings. Ensure "Transform Display" is enabled in the "Display" menu and update your graphics drivers. If problems persist, resetting Maya preferences may help. For detailed guidance, consult the Maya documentation or seek assistance on Autodesk support forums.
