Maya mouse issue, not able to select or move anything, selects hotbox instead

Hello I'm having a weird and frustrating issue with Maya. Every time I select an object and try to move that object with the manipulators it draws a line and selects the hotbox instead of the manipulators, and then I cant unselect the object in perspective view but I can select other things from the outliner. I have tried with multiple other scenes and it still happens, but it doesn't happen with a fresh new scene. Any help is much appreciated, thanks

Hi @Anonymous


You can try deleting your settings/preferences.


You may also want to check your drivers and make sure they're up to date as well as try a different mouse.


Let me know if anything changes!
