The 3D Gizmo

The gizmo is used to manipulate nodes in your scene. It will appear when selecting a node.
The Atomic Editor has 3 kinds of gizmos:

1) The move gizmo
Used to move the selected object.

2) The scale gizmo
Used to scale the selected object.

3) The rotate gizmo
Used to rotate the selected object.

By dragging one of the 3 sides of the gizmo, you will manipulate the selected node in its corresponding direction by its respective function (move, translate, or scale).
