When I am moving an object in Object Mode, the axis gizmo disappears. This is very unhelpful. Is there a way to make it always visible?

I want to always see this gizmo:

    $\begingroup$ Currently it's not possible to show the gizmo while dragging. The discussion related to (one of) the feature requests can be found here including the explanation by Julian Eisel what challenges exist for implementing this. $\endgroup$ – Robert Gützkow Feb 14 at 9:57

Of course there is a way.

Just click the gizmo, instead of dragging it.
Then use the pop-up menu to adjust the values, and the gizmo stays visible.

You can toggle on/off gizmos for move, rotation and scale here… To activate this first you need to select "Active object" - above those three…

When you're satisfied with interface changes (settting up gizmos, deleting standard cube etc) go to FILE => DEFAULT => SAVE START UP FILE. Next time you create a new file it will be the way you like it.
