Axis handles not following selections


Hi everyone,

I’m new to C4D and I’d like to know how to fix this problem.

Basically the axis handles always stay at world center even when I’m selecting vertices/edges. How do I make the axis follow my current selection of vertices/edges etc.?

I’ve attached a link to a gif: The 1st half of the gif is what I’m facing and the 2nd half is what I’m expecting to do.



There are numerous axis settings in the tool settings for translate, rotate, and scale operations.

Activate one of these tools, plus point/edge/polygon mode. Go to the Attribute Manager, set it to Tool (Menu Mode), and find the proper settings under the Modeling Axis tab - Axis and Orientation.


Yes, that’s it! Thanks a lot.
