Default Transform Component tool relocates - Extrude.

Hey all, im using Maya 8, with a small issue with the transform component tool relocating when switching between local axis mode and global axis mode clicking on the little blue circle.

What i get often with extruding edges and faces is i need to switch to the global axis mode and ill be zoomed in, in front or side view and i switch modes the next thing my tool is off screen and i have to use insert, and pull the pivot point back up manually, zoom in again and repeat that process again.

I have tried using "Center Pivot" command but that doesnt seem to work with this particular tool. Ive noticed in a few tutorial videos the tutor is able to click the change axis modifier button on the tool and have it just switch on the same point it was at.

I took some screenshots of a simple cube that i extruded and swtiched modes showing whats happening:

Before - before swtiching axis modes.

After - after, notice its moved away.

Sorry for the length, hopefully ive explained it well and thanks for reading.

Could you point us to those tutorials, because to my knowledge what you are describing is supposed to happen.

Ohhh.. ok, thanks then i will indeed take a closer look again at them. Happy that things are working as they should, i guess ill get used to it behaving like this.

As for the tutorials mentioned, i would really rather not say as they come from a different group or business than here, so i dont want to spam it here.

I wasnt so much having difficulty completing the tutorials, so much as the tool acting like this seemed weird.

Anyways thanks again
