3ds max 2019
I’ve been operating 3ds max for 20 years and this always gets me by surprise again and again, especially when working with students 😦
In the past, the option to hide/show the Transform Gizmo had a hot key X, and curiously, even though that way it would happen more frequently that the Gizmo would disappear by mistake, when it was X I actually remembered it, and remembered to tell my students to just press X.
The menu command:
VIews > Show Transform Gizmo
I never remember it,
And also, I can’t logically except that it’s a system setting that is kept even when resetting the scene or opening a new file.
