Extrude Manipulator: scale handles obscuring position handles, can't grab
on Mar 15, 2013 at 7:03:55 am

Hi, I'm trying to use the MESH EDIT/EXTRUDE function, but the Scale manipulator handles (the cubes) are overlapping the Position manipulator handles (the cones) in such a way as to prevent access to the Position handles.

How can this be addressed. I see in the help files the cubes positioned at the tip of the cones, but here they overlap significantly.

THANKS!

First, try changing your manipulator size with the + and - keys on your keypad. Does that help?

Then try clicking on the shafts of the arrows that connect them all to the center of the manipulator. You don't have to click on the arrowhead itself; any point along the entire arrow should serve.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for that guidance.

I finally went into the Preferences window and adjusted them there. Good to know about the +/- keys though!

Yeah, they're pretty common culprits, especially if you like to use your number pad to enter numeric values!
