Blender 2.8 randomly sets the LMB to set the 3D cursor in Edit Mode despite the keymap settings stating that is it LMB. The LMB is selecting in Object Mode but not in Edit Mode.

It does this in only one project. Other projects still use the LMB for selecting in Edit Mode.

I've tried to reset the factory setting via File -> Default -> Load Factory Settings. I've tried Preferences -> Load Factory Preferences. I've restarted Blender. Like it was suggested in this question.

But nothing works. It's like I accidentally pressed a button combination to set it like this. Does anybody know what I can do the make selecting in Edit Mode the LMB again?

  • $\begingroup$ WOW that was actually it. I can't believe it was something that small. Probably why I didn't see it. I don't even remember pressing it. Thank you. $\endgroup$ – 211086004 Oct 17 at 7:02

  • $\begingroup$ Tried to do that but it asked if I wanted to answer my own question and I agreed that that was a weird thing to do, and seeing as I couldn't select FFeller's comment as an answer I did it this way. $\endgroup$ – 211086004 Oct 18 at 13:23

See comments. Will remember to do it like that in the future.

Edit: Can only accept my own answer to my own question in 12 hours. If you are forcing people to do this it might by handy to get rid of this.
