Default lost all handles

When ever I select any manipulator tools, none of the handles are shown. I can move it about and shape it but the rotate tool is a bit hard. Using the universal manipulator doesn't help either??? How do I bring up the handles???

I had this and it could be your graphics card, (it was when I was trying to use maya with an intergrated card!!)

Do you see the manipulators in one of hte windows but not all of them, cos that was my problem.

ERM NOT SURE
may b they are hidden under the mesh
try pushing the '+' a couple of times to see if they appear as this increases their size

if not mayb u need to restore preset on either the whole of maya or just each tool
ask if ur not sure how to restore defaults

go to the maya folder on the c drive, and delete the prefs file and restart maya, then a new prefs file will be created with default settings.

Maya sets up a folder on c when you begin to use it. In this folder there is a folder called 7.0. In this folders is prefs. Remembers how you set up the maya interface, your preferences. Deleting it sets it back to default
