Default gizmo scale problem..

i am having a problem with my gizmo (move, scale, rotate tool) not fitting in the window i am working in when working with my mesh. with the move tool i can grab one of the bars and drag but the scale tool wont work unless i grab an end. also the rotate gizmo isnt showing up when i try and rotate a joint of my skeleton... i can try and rotate the joint itself but i cant control the direction of the rotation.

any ideas?

also how can i change the color of my background when i want to render my scene?

thx in advance!

Well im not sure if this will help, but +/- keys make the manipulator larger and smaller...give that a try...

As for certain ones not showing up, it might be the scale of the manipulator and it just being too large...

As for the background color, try View > Camera Attribute Editor>Environment>Background color. (you can also add an image there too)
