A student sent me the message below. Any idea what is going on? I vaguely
remember something like this happening to me but can't remember what it
was nor how I fixed it.


Hey thom, I'm having a really weird problem with my Cinema4D

All my object moving tools ( the move, scale and rotate) are ONLY scaling
objects.. I can't use them to their real function. I'll click on the arrow
to move an object and all it will do is scale the object.

I have no idea what happened. I took my files to class thursday and re
opened them in my room tonight, and now this is happeningg.. Any ideas on
how to fix this? because this is massive amounts of annoying. Some
setting must have gotten tripped, but i dont remember changing anything.

I mentioned this to a friend of mine who uses C4D for a living.
here's heard of this before though he's not sure what causes it.
He suggests it might be when you chage from one version of the program
to another.

He offers a work round...

"open a new scene then merge your old scene into it - everything
should then be back to normal :)"

Hope this helps

My student did a typical student thing. He reinstalled the entire damned
program and the bug went a way.
