I cannot edit vertices, edges or faces because of the 3d cursor. When in edit mode with the appropriate vertex, edge or face icon selected I try to click to select, say a vertex which I want to drag to resize and all I get is the 3D cursor which cancels the drag edit action.

    $\begingroup$ Are you using a left or right mouse button to drag? $\endgroup$ – Denis Jul 30 '15 at 2:10

  • $\begingroup$ You have to use right mouse button to move faces, vertices, and edges. If that still does not work, try going into user preferences to check if anything is changed. $\endgroup$ – Kesha Wilson Jul 30 '15 at 3:15

    $\begingroup$ In general, you may find the keyboard shortcuts G/R/S are easier and faster when you want to Grab, Rotate, or Scale. Not trying to side-step your question, just sharing workflow advice that has worked for me. $\endgroup$ – Mentalist Jul 30 '15 at 3:31

You can change the mouse button with which you click in the Preferences/Input and change (select with) to Left, it is set to Right by default
