# 3D manipulator stuck on left side of split viewport

I'm using Blender 2.8. I split my viewport but accidentally moved the 3D manipulator to the right side- I don't know how I moved it nor how to move it back to the left side. The ride side is in rendered view. When I try to use the measure tool, manipulator and other tools on the left side, I get an alert that says 'gizmo hidden in this view'.

• Can you show on picture whats wrong ? Or go to C:\Users\UserName\Application Data\Blender Foundation\Blender and delete folder 2.8X – Slobodan Vidovic Dec 12 '19 at 21:31
• @SlobodanVidovic There is no need to delete that folder, it wouldn't fix the described problem anyway. – Robert Gützkow Dec 12 '19 at 21:52

The exact error message is "Gizmos hidden in this view" which is printed by view3d_ruler_add_invoke() (view3d_gizmo_ruler.c) when the Measure tool is used and v3d->gizmo_flag has the V3D_GIZMO_HIDE or V3D_GIZMO_HIDE_TOOL flags set. V3D_GIZMO_HIDE is set when Show Gizmos is disabled and V3D_GIZMO_HIDE_TOOL when Active Tools in the Viewport Gizmos options is deactivated.
