My cursor is a circle. How do I get it back to normal?

My cursor is a circle. How do I get it back to normal?  I'm not sure how it got like this.  I'm not able to move rotate or scale with it like this.  I've attached a picture.  Thank you!

Hi!

Are you using a tablet? If so, it might have something to do with its settings or drivers not being up-to-date.

I remember having similar issues with long clicks in the tablet.

Hi Laurenmdean,

I am not sure if your issue is solved. I ran into same issue and I fixed it.

 

Under "Common Selection Options" in the Tool Settings, I noticed that I accidentally chose "Drag" instead "Marquee".

If you choose "Marquee", that circle will disappear and will change back to arrow as default.

 

Hopefully this will be helpful if someone run into same issue of Circle Cursor in the Maya Viewport.

I selected "Marquee" in those settings to get it back to the arrow mouse pointer.

I don't understand? Try using ShareX or Geforce Experience screen recorder to record your problem.

Maybe press "B" key to turn off soft selection.
