Why is the origin of this empty stuck on the 3D cursor? How do I get it unstuck? Setting the origin to geometry doesn’t fix it. Thanks. Blender 3.2.2, Windows 11 Blend

Actually the origin isn't "stuck on the 3d cursor" in your case like this case. I see the little orange dot (orange dot) is at the center of the empty and moves with it.

Instead your have your Transform Pivot Point set to 3d Cursor, instead of something like Individual [object] Origins Or Active Element.

Indeed it is so easy to get disoriented and get blender "off kilter" with so many dials and settings!

  • $\begingroup$ @WilburPost I attribute my loss of hair to frustrating moments with such a complex piece of software; not much better in 3ds Max. We need the "read my mind" interface that's coming in 2035. $\endgroup$
