I have a problem with gizmo (I am not sure what it called but it is the three arrows of axes when you scale, rotate, move).

it disappears sometimes and I can't get it back unless I open a new project. Can please some one help me with that?

I am using Blender 2.8. When I press Ctrl+Space the show gizmo box is checked.

  • $\begingroup$ the gizmo only shows if you are using one of the translate tools. you can find them on the tool bar (left part of the screen, if it's not there, press t) is that your problem, or is it something else? $\endgroup$ – Millard Sep 27 at 19:29
  • $\begingroup$ do you have the code boxes on on purpose? $\endgroup$ – Millard Sep 27 at 19:30

    $\begingroup$ it was frustrating my friend , I just figured it out why and it was very simple .. I was hitting the spacebar key by accident and the timeline was playing and i wasnt able to do anything until i figured that it moving by frames from the info top left while it is playing .. thank you for your help $\endgroup$ – mhmadSy Sep 28 at 5:18

You have to have something selected in order to see the gizmo, but I guess you know that. If you've accidentally moved the origin of the object to somewhere else out of sight, that could be a cause of an apparently disappeared gizmo. The gizmo appears over the origin. Try typing Shift Control Alt C, then go to Origin to Geometry and see if that helps. That's the hotkey for Blender 2.79 at least. If it's not the right hotkey in 2.8, go to the Tools tab when in object mode and Set Origin should be there.

  • $\begingroup$ this was helpful thank you I didn't think of that but the object do scale , move and rotate from the center , the Geometry of the object is in the center .. I don't think this hotkey works for 2.8 . thank you @Susan $\endgroup$ – mhmadSy Sep 27 at 21:04
