adding a circle as Shape : the bone disappears?


EDIT: alright, sorry, it does not disappear, but we can only see it in WireFrame Mode, is there a way to see the shape in a normal Solid Mode?

i was following this tutorial ( but there is something i don’t understand:

i would like to use a circle instead of my IK helper bone, the one between the hand bone and the forearm bone. So I add a circle in the “Shape” field, but my arm_IK.L disappears…? Would you know why?


after i added the “shape” name in the specific field, the bone disappears:


Next to the box where you set the bone custom shape, enable the Wireframe tickbox

Thank you very much!
Sorry for the topic, i thought it was more complicated than that! :wink:
