When you first start up Blender 2.6.9 it has a cube, a camera, and a lamp. Both the camera and the lamp have a simple icon-like image that you can see and move around like other objects in the scene. However, sometime during my modeling process these icons have disappeared and when I try to move my light source a circle shows up around where it is but the circle doesn't move when I try to move the light around. Is there a setting or some way to change it back so that I can see the icons for the lamp and camera and move them around again?

Edit: I also just found out when I tried to move other objects that the circle shows up for them too, is there a way to make that go away as well? It's kind of annoying and I'm not used to it.

The large circle you described is showing because you have Proportional Editing enabled enter image description here. Click the icon or use O to disable it. As for the missing icons, make sure that you didn't hide them accidentally or that you didn't tick Only Render under Display.

  • $\begingroup$ That fixed the circle, thanks, but it didn't seem to do anything to help make the icons show up, is there something else that I'm missing? $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Roboinventor Use Ctrl + Spacebar to make the manipulator appear. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ The manipulators were never gone, just the little light bulb and camera icons where the camera and light bulb are, like this upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/0/00/… you can see the little light bulb and camera in the image $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ @Roboinventor That scene looks normal to me. I'm not sure what i'm looking for here, can you circle the area(s) or save and attach the blend file. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @MarcClintDion which is why we moved the conversation to chat. He wasn't describing the problem accurately. The screenshot above is what he wanted, possibly taken from a default version and not the scene he was in. $\endgroup$
