I made bones for one of my characters and wanted to use sliders. But right now, it seems impossible to do since some of the bones have weird "rotate pivot" axis. I tried clicking the "realign" buton in the "bone tools", but it did not work... I also tried to delete the weird bones and create new ones, but it failed too. How should I realign them?

Doesn't look like a realign problem but just a gimble locking problem which is what is going to happen in that case. Away around this is to align and link in a point helper to the offending bones and it will solve your issues. You might want to have a look at my rigging series for guildance as I cover all the pit falls of rigging that you need to know about.

I tought there would be an easy way to realign the bones, but it's not the case. So I will do as you said.

Thank you very much for the tips !
