[SOLVED] Editor's translate component doesn't change its direction upon r


I am facing a issue the follow issue:

When I rotate a empty object its transformation doesn’t change direction in the editor’s view, even though it changes in the backend.

With some rotations, the arrows SHOULD change, but they dont and I have to guess where the new object is Looking at…:

Hi @Mustafa_Ali,

Indeed the translation gizmos aren’t updated to the local forward direction of the selected entity.

This may be a good feature request for the Playcanvas editor, if would like you can submit it here (editor repo):
