I'm using v2.80. I have chosen "Select with: Left Mouse Button", and as far as I can tell, the LMB is supposed to Select. Instead, it's moving the cursor around.

It seems like moving the cursor is supposed to be Shift + RMB, which works.

In the keymap settings, it's configured correctly:

  • Select: LMB
  • Set 3D Cursor: Shift + RMB

Yet, the behavior I'm experiencing is that LMB is moving the cursor, rather than selecting.

Shift + LMB is working, so I can just do that. But this seems like a bug. But this is also my second day with Blender, so there might be something I'm missing.

I'm on Windows 10.

    $\begingroup$ That shouldn't happen. I'd suggest backing up the keymap configuration and do a reset (File > Default > Load Factory Settings). $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Jul 17 '19 at 16:26

In case something goes wrong with the configuration, you can restore the default settings through File > Default > Load Factory Settings.


Press T to bring up the toolbar on the left.

You will find you have the Cursor Tool selected. Select the Select Tool at the top to restore default behavior.
