You might encounter this problem when you're first learning ZBrush and just getting used to the interface. I've decided that…I want to pose my model using the Transpose tool.…So I have my demo soldier model loaded in the canvas and I know to activate the Transpose tool I just need to click the Move, …Scale or Rotate buttons.…As you may anticipate when I do this I'm going to encounter a problem.…So I click on Move and instead of the Transpose handle I get…this strange looking tool. This is the Transform Gyro.…
I can rotate the model and move it around.…You can see he's actually interacting with the back of the canvas there.…But I don't have my Transpose handles.…The reason this occurred is I forgot…that I need to be in Edit mode…to make the Transpose tool active.…So I'm going to switch back to Draw, turn on Edit,…and I can see this border's…here indicating Edit mode and my button is on.
