BUG? Gumball's plane handle no longer can move to 2 axis simultaneously

I noticed that there is a change of the behaviour of the Gumball, so that when I try to move an object with Gumball’s plane handle, the latter no longer will let me move the object along two axes simultaneously (XY, ZX or ZY). The only way to “unlock” that is to manually turn off the Ortho or by holding the Shift key, which is counter-intuitive, because that particular plane handle was originally made to allow free movement along two axes. If I wanted to move the object only along a single axis, I would simply use one of the arrows instead.

Also, check my video below. My previous command was setting an MPlane and while I tried to move the selected object with Gumball’s plane, right-clicking to reset its position actually activated the MPlane instead, leading to accidental selection and movement of other objects, and a messy performance of the Gumball.

Set an MPlane to one of the tori and Ortho is activated. Both the torus with the MPlane and without can be moved freely with the Gumball.

My Rhino 7’s Gumball behaves quite crazy, especially with active MPlane. I use Rhino 7 SR11
(7.11.21251.7001, 2021-09-08).

I see what you describe above now in Rhino 7 SR11.

Weird, can this be fixed please?

I can confirm that this bug has been fixed in the latest Rhino 7 SR11 (7.11.21257.7001, 2021-09-14) that I just installed. :slight_smile:

Now that’s weird because I have installed the same build and with ortho on the gumball plane handle is stuck on the axis.

Damn, this is really odd. I started Rhino again and Gumball now still behaves improperly. Not sure what happens… So, yes, this bug is still present in the latest Service release candidate.
