And as I’m about 3 hours deep into making a nice looking cupcake in Blender, I suddenly noticed the Manipulator was gone – you know, those three colored arrows that you allow you to move your object or selected material to move along the X, Y, Z axis.
Well, solving the problem was luckily simple: I pressed the space bar on the keyboard and… voilà. It was back.
Thank you for checking out my Blender Note! I am by all means a beginner in Blender, so I do not feel qualified to label this post as a 'tip' or 'tutorial'. However, I decided to upload this note for myself, and hopefully it can be useful to others as well.
