I have a few basic questions about Blender that I can not find an answer to and I would appreciate it if someone could help me or point me in the correct direction.
My 3d model has a cube with dimensions of 1000x1000x100 and I can not see the whole object in the window at once in perspective view. If I use the wheel on the mouse to zoom out, parts of my cube disappear. I was thinking that I should change my viewport to view a wider area but I can not figure out how to do that.
My 3d model actually contains several cubes of around 1000x1000x100. I positioned them by typing numbers into the transform menu in the sidebar. Now if I am in Object Mode and click on one of the cubes or if I click on the object in the outliner, I do not get the crosshairs on the object so that I can move it around with my mouse. I can choose and edit a vertex in Edit Mode, but I can not move or rotate the entire object with my mouse. I have been playing with various settings in the Properties Panel, but if I changed something that I should not have, I can't figure out what I did.
The first time I created my model, I tried to resize one of my cubes by typing in values to the transform menu in the sidebar. Then, pressing CTRL-A, Scale to reset the scale back to 1 did not work. I solved the problem by recreating my model in a new file, but I am hoping that there is a better solution.
I have already search online to try to find answers. Probably I am missing something fairly simple, so I would appreciate any advice. Thank you very much.
