I've looked everywhere but I can't find a way to select things "behind" the gizmo in 2.80. It's like there's a forcefield that gets in the way. I didn't have this problem in 2.7x. Is there some setting that allows me to select through the gizmo so I don't have to keep disabling it while editing?


I had the same problem and the solution is to go to

Edit > Preferences > Keymap then select Drag under Activate Gizmo.

and it should work.

  • $\begingroup$ Thank you... finally don't have to toggle the gizmo on/off to select things. You've saved me from thousands of extra clicks. $\endgroup$ – Safetyman Jun 20 '19 at 18:59
