I'm sure it's an easy question, but I'm not sure what this thing is called to even look up the answer.

I made a custom Layout workflow tab that better suits me, and created a new Layout.001 workflow tab to recover the original default layout. Layout.001 is missing this little three-axis view angle control, though--how do I get it back? It's not the nub of an arrow you can see on the upper right; that just summons the N menus. I personally prefer hotkey, but if you know how to recover it from menus, that would be great for completeness. Thanks!

(PS is it possible to rename the workflow tabs?)

The name of the object in question is the Navigation Gizmo and the toggle checkbox for it is under the Gizmo menu (highlighted below):


  • $\begingroup$ I had simply hit the little "+" icon to create the workspace; nothing more. I think the layout came in without the widget by default. Thanks! PS how did you resize the circles in your navigation widget? Edit > Preferences? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Hmm.. I'm not sure what you mean by "resize" - I don't think I altered the default values at all. Maybe it's because I'm using 3.0 alpha? $\endgroup$ Jun 21, 2021 at 2:22
  • $\begingroup$ That might be it. I thought you'd simply adjusted various UI elements. Looks snazzy. Thanks for answering! (Incidentally, do you know if it's possible to rename workflow tabs, e.g. Layout, Modeling, Layout.001?) $\endgroup$
