Problems with XYZ

Is there any way to set the XYZ axis’s back to their default settings? Because every time I extrude a mesh, the colored lines of the XYZ axis’s go in some funky direction and messes up the extrusion, deforms it and doen’t extrude all the faces.

I appreciate any help, thanks.

the manipulators default to “Global” … you can set them back on the 3d window header

did you try and constraint to one specific axis.

Eg. when you grab you can press x y or z to constraint to that specific axis instead of letting blender do it whch is undesirable most of the time.
