A recent version of 2.8 did away with the Multi-Gizmo button:
I particularly liked it as it I could easily configure it NOT to show the rotate grab rings, which always got in the way and were accidentally pressed.
Now, this button is gone and there are only the 3. What happened to the multi-gizmo?
Turns out it can now be added the Default Select button. To do this, I’ve decided to add those same Scale and Move gizmo to my Default Select, which actually makes for a nice sensible UI. Here’s how that’s done:
Now, when I select an object, that gizmo automatically pops up.
To hide the gizmo, just press ‘G’, ‘R’, or ‘S’ and proceed.
The only issue is the gizmo can get in the way of selecting. Too bad there’s not a shortcut key to toggle it off/on. Before you just tapped the Select button.
Now you can tap the Cursor button and it will hide the gizmo during selection. That’s the best I got.
Any other thoughts on how to hide it during selection?
