Gumball align value feature stopped working * RESOLVED*

Alright I am learning Rhino so I am a new user. I have been following along with Kyle Houchens and his videos on Vimeo. ALOT of things have stumped me. It seems that my zeroing out ability on gumball arrows has stopped working… the function that I was using to make curves tangent and align them along the same axis. you can click on multiple point and with gumball click on any arrow and type in a number to align the points to that function. Now for some reson it just stopped working.

Never mind I am an idiot

To do this kind of an alignment, I think that you have to click on the tiny square handle (which is for scaling) rather than on the arrow (which is for moving).

yup after 30 minutes i finally realized thanks
