Object Gizmos

The Object Gizmos allows mouse controlled translation, rotation and scaling in the 3D Viewport. There is a separate gizmos for each operation. Each gizmo can be used separately or in combination with the others. You can use the gizmos by dragging one of the three colored axes with LMB. The transformation will be locked to the clicked axis.

Holding down Shift after you LMB the gizmo handle will constrain the action to smaller increments. Holding down Shift before you LMB click on one of the handles will cause the gizmo action to be performed relative to the other two axes. See Plane Locking.

Orientation
