cannot rotate!!
show user profile  boswaldo
Hi guys, first time on here...
I'm a bit of a newbie to max, but i am experiencing an odd problem here.
Basically, i suddenly cannot rotate any object in my scene, on any axis. Even if i close max, open a new scene and create a box primitive, it will not allow me to rotate!!!

I know that this might stem from a number of different things, but as far as the basics go the object is not locked, none of the axises are locked and im using Euler XYZ as my rotation controller.

Pretty please, any suggestions??

Is the problem that the rotate gizmo (the 3 coloured circles) are not on the screen anymore? If so press X.

Or are they there and you still cant rotate it?

Lol you obviously havent been on this forum very long :p

No gif as I wasnt sure it was that problem, he didnt say the gizmo was missing so I didnt want to assume, coz you know what that does...

but so as not to dissapoint...

Would it irritate you even more if I told you that that little spot is still on the keyboard? :o)
