Default Help

I'm New to Maya, and lately i havent been on it very much. Just a few hours ago i opened the application and am on it. For some bizarre reason, when i select the rotate tool,scale tool, and move tool the lines on the object are MASSIVE, i have to zoom out,out,out to get it-and sometimes it is there a button i can press to make it smaller pls?

I think you need to use the - key to make it smaller. (and + to make it bigger).

Also, try doing a search. This comes up a lot!

good to see other youngsters here, like me and matttheman and a few others. im 14,

anyway, as someone has already said, use the plus and minus buttons on the keyboard (- +) and it will make them bigger or smaller.

anyway, i hope you become a frequent poster here!

cheers ,
