You mean that it seems rotated? That happens, usually when you've combined polygon meshes and stuff. If your project allows it, select the object with the 'malfunctioning' pivot, open the channel box, right mouse click on any of the values -> freeze -> choose one of the options. This will reset your translate/rotate/scale values and will restore the pivot points to its original axis.

At least, that's how I fix it.

Think i got the same problem.. doesn't matter if i create a new project, freeze transformation, center pivot and such.. i still have a small 5 degree or so offset on the pivot.. so when i move it in one direction it slowly goes off the "line" and makes it impossible to work in a good way..

I think i got this problem when i first used the insert button on the pivot and then the small icon which allows me to rotate the pivot without rotating the object.. but this imo should not affect all future projects...!

How do i align the pivot with the world map as your friend helped you with Mathias?

say its your scale tool thats wrong, you just doubleclick and press the " Alling to world" botton and it should fix it self. if not please send me a screencap of the box that appears after you double clicked.

Worked perfectly, never thought about looking inside the pivot itself..
Good to be able to get back to Maya :)

Thank you!
