XYZ not at objects' Origin?

ok I hope this is a quick question :slight_smile: The XYZ thing that you use for moving scaling etc. objects is at the cursor not the objects origin (if that’s not what it’s called I mean the tiny purple sphere in the middle of the object) can anyone help?
thanks in advance :slight_smile:

phew my hands stink of curry powder :S


In the Editing options (F9) are three buttons: Center, Center New and Center Cursor. You can use these to move the centre point. It sounds like you want to use Center New.

and yeah I know about that it moves the origin of the object but the XYZ arrows are still wherever the cursor happens to be

Check the “Rotation/Scaling Pivot” button in the 3D view’s buttons.

thankyou so much! :smiley:
