Strange symbol/icon following cursor

Recommended Posts

I'm in the middle of doing a plan and this strange icon or symbol shows up out of nowhere and follows my cursor. I attached a screenshot.

That cursor indicates that you have angle snaps turned off. Turn angle snaps on, and the icon will disappear.

You can turn this behavior on/off in Preferences:

It is not recommended to turn off all of the behavior indicators in your preferences.  This will only hide problems.

 

If you accidentally turn off something like angle snaps and then draw out a plan, you will have lots of problems because nothing will be on even angles.  There are lots of other indicators that you may miss as well.

Angle Snaps can be toggled on or off through the menu, your preferences, or as Stephen has pointed out, through a toolbar button.  You could also setup a hotkey for this but I don't believe we have one setup by default.  The most likely case is that you accidentally hit the toolbar button.

Thanks all...I'm grateful for the help...like Dermot said, I probably hit the button by mistake and shut it off.
