Is there a way to hide the selected object's origin in the 3D view? By default all unselected object's origins do not show, but even after deselecting everything with A A it still shows the active object's origin.
I know the Only Render checkbox will hide all the origins, but in this case it hides too much.

For Blender 2.8 and above:

You can hide the Origins for the active Objects and all Objects in the Overlay Menu. Viewport Overlays

One trick you can do is move the active object to a different layer or hide it.

  1. Create a dummy object (⇧ ShiftA)
  2. Hide it (H)

    $\begingroup$ Not a bad trick. But there is no way to just not show the origin on the selected object? Something like the opposite of All Object Origins $\endgroup$ – David Aug 31 '14 at 21:42
  • $\begingroup$ @David I don't think so. Why do you want to hide it? Maybe there is another solution.. $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Aug 31 '14 at 22:27
  • $\begingroup$ It was rather unusual, I was comparing textured planes. I need to know which is selected, but don't want the origin blocking it. I know I could move the plane, but was curious. $\endgroup$ – David Aug 31 '14 at 23:15
  • $\begingroup$ Hm.. The selected object is still highlighted in wireframe view when only render is enabled. Perhaps you could switch back and forth between textured and wireframe views? $\endgroup$ – gandalf3 Aug 31 '14 at 23:51
