Damn it, Maya. Just… Damn it.

Maya Hates Me: Your tool is tiny / your tool is huge

Skipping for the moment the inevitable “that’s what she said” joke, this can be a pretty annoying problem if you don’t know how to fix it.  Sometimes, your tool manipulator (that’s what it’s called.  seriously, I can’t make this stuff up) is way too big or way too small:

impress the females with your large tool

impress the females with your large tool

Aww, how cute.

Aww, how cute.

SOLUTION:  Quit leaning on the number pad
The default hotkey for changing the size of the tool manipulator is the plus and minus keys on the number pad.  If they don’t work, try looking up IncreaseManipulatorSize and DecreaseManipulatorSize in the hotkey editor.   … that’s what she said.

    Are you asking how to change the tool or just stating that its too big and too small.

    either way just use the plus and minus key to change the size.

    You know, not sure too many people see a small tool and think “how cute”…. 😛
