I want to click the green manipulator, not the red one.
However, if two manipulator (red & green) appear moderately close together from the camera, Blender will think that I click the one that is near camera (red).
The below dot-gif image shows my clicks.
All of 3 scaling tests were done by clicking the green.
In the first two tests, Blender wrongly think I click the red manipulator.
In the last test, before I clicked, I rotated camera a bit and get the expected correct result.
How to reduce the distance threshold that Blender use?
^ To make testing convenient, I wish for an answer that works when I click the yellow zone.
Currently, if I click the yellow zone, Blender will wrongly think I click the red manipulator.
However, if I click the cyan zone, Blender will correctly think I click the green manipulator.
- Blender 2.81 & 2.83 & 2.90 & 2.91(experimental) in Windows 10.
- Blender : switching because Industrial and Blender-default keymap doesn't help.
- Windows : It can't be fixed by
Display>Scale and layout>Advanced scaling settings> = 100%.
Environment that there is no issue:
- Blender 2.81 in Windows 7.
- Blender 2.81 in the problematic computer. It needs factory reset.
The trick has no effect on Blender 2.90.
Bounty Reason (old)
HikariTW's answer is a good attempt, but sadly, for my case, it isn't useful at all.
Jachym Michal's is very insightful, but it doesn't provide any solution except (bug) reporting.
Increality's provides a doable solution. However, for me, it is (very) inconvenient.
Yudaka's argues that there is no such issue in his machine, and I confirm later that there is actually no issue in one of my computers.
