Exclamation Okay, what stupid thing did I do wrong?

Here I am innocently modeling, and suddenly my transform tools (move, rotate, scale) are GREY and UNRESPOSIVE! I have 3 separate models in one window and this only affects one of them.

Can someone tell me how to fix this, I suspect it's something very simple.

Cheers

sounds like you locked them somehow or another... Select the greyed out channels, right click > Unlock

As far as I can tell there are no channels to select - it's just the move tools that are grey and affected like this.
