    Hi,

    I'm sorry this is going to be so stupid of a question, but I am trying to teach myself Unity and I was going through the tutorials, doing the Lego microgame one. Everything was just fine until suddenly I stopped seeing the transform tools handles (the xyz arrows for the Move tool, the three planes of rotations circles for the Rotate tool) around certain objects. Instead all I see are the rotate/flip by 90° icons:

    Confusingly, for some objects (mostly the rock forms it seems?) I *do* still have the transformation tool handles:

    I have found other, similar comments (like here: https://forum.unity.com/threads/sol...tain-objects-need-advice.626023/#post-4194565) that seem to be related to the Probuilder tools, but I have not knowingly used them, I don't have the set of icons at the top center of my screen that people refer to in offering those solutions, and I can't figure out how to get to them.

    I'm pretty sure I just inadvertently invoked a keyboard shortcut to turn something off, or on, or whatever, but I cannot figure out how to undo it. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    That's odd. Let's see a screen shot of the top of your Scene view, so we can see what you've got there.

    Thank you for responding! :)

    Here's a full screen grab, project was just reopened and I did nothing but select the one brick to see whether it had magically fixed itself lol.

    OMG I feel like an idiot. Though I am confused as to how I got that far in the tutorial without realizing that turning on the Brick Building tool also turned off the interaction handles and replaced them with the "90° only" version of tools :S

    Anyway, thank you for pointing that out to me, problem solved, moving on :D

    Best wishes,
    David

    You're not an idiot man, that's how you learn stuff, by making mistakes and learning how not to make same error again.
