View Full Version : Switching between coordinates

01 January 2008, 04:02 AM
How does one go about swtiching from local to world coordinates, etc.?

I have looked in a lot of places through the forums and the built in help system and can't seem to get a clear answer.

You can do two ways AFAIK.

(1) While transform manipulator is on, holding "w" + LMB will popup marking menu.

(2) While transform manipulator is on, click 'Show or hide tool setting' button on right top corner.

For further infomation, access help file with "transform along different axes" as keyword.

Hope this helps,

Sounds good.

One more thing on a completely different topic.

For some reason the grid in my perspective view has become very tiny in relation to the objects in the scene. I never purposely changed it so I don't know why it happened. Any ideas?

Sorry for switching topics but I hate to create another thread for something so small.
