This might be a very stupid question, but why has my cursor changed orientation?
show user profile  CAD Monkey
Hi guys,

I hope that this will be stupidly simple to fix:

I have been working on a staircase model and pretty-much randomly the orientation of my cursor seems to have changed, meaning that I can't move vertices around as I would like. Can anyone tell me what I have done to cause this, and most importantly, how to change it back please?

Thanks in advance as always,


Today is a gift, and tomorrow is not a promise, so love life!

check to see if the reference coordinate system is set to local.
You may want it set to world

Hah! What a stupid question! ;)

Semi-on topic here though, I was working away in Max as usual today and my RCS (That's Reference Coordinate System for the cool cats) seemed to have set itself to local twice. Mind you... I do model like a madman so I wouldn't put it past myself to accidentally select this option with a swift mouse movement... I'm like lightning..
