Blender modelling question? Answered


I have two objects on the screen.
When I select one and press G, a large circle appears which alters both objects when I grab; this has not happened before.

I know that I must have pressed a shortcut by mistake but I cannot seem to find an answer on the Googles.
I've even gone through the process of pressing each key.

Could someone tell me how to return to normal.


EDIT; When I say normal , I mean, I need to get the Grab cursor back to normal( at the moment when I try to use it, it is a big circle, that effects everything it touches, rather than just the object that i want to move).

I think what you're dealing with is the proportional editing tool. https://www.blender.org/manual/editors/3dview/transform/transform_control/proportional_edit.html

Hope this helps. Good Luck!

It's not acting like the paint select tool is it? (when you press "c" you can use a circle to select multiple objects) If that's the case then your keyboard shortcuts have probably been changed in the user prefferences.

Hello Quadrifoglio,

Thanks for the reply.

My description may have been misleading;

It's not the moving that's the problem, it moves fine, it is just that so does everything else in the circle.

I can use escape to go back but the grab function will still be a big circle if I try to use it again.

I need the cursor to go back to normal grab function for edit mode.

That is a great link though and I will now go through it and it will help with Blender.
