I'm unable to reproduce this. What does "Create mission" mean in your description? Just staring a new scenario without adding any entities? Or should there be anything specific present?

I placed a Soldier with the "Player" assignement. After that the Camera was locked and I could only use the 2D-Editor properly. I´m probably missing something, is there a camera unlock/lock key or something like that?

I think I can add some information to this, seeing as I seem to have the same problem.

The Eden Editor works fine before you start a mission preview, but when you leave the preview to come back into the editor your camera controls will be frozen.
If you go into the map view and try to doubleclick to move the camera there it wont affect the 3d view and the the icon will kind of stick to "the points the camera were attached to before it broke" (The attached pictures show how the camera kind of sticks)

It should also be noted that a (for lack of a better name) "seeker lines" appear and follow your mouse, like when you bring up your map while in the actual game.

Without mods I don't get this problem all that often but I get the problem every time I use these mods; (ACE3, ACRE2, BlastCore A3, JSRS and the ShackTac Fireteam Hud)

This issue started happening yesterday, both with and without mods but the fact that the mods seem to be able to bring out the issue each time is interesting.

I have the same issue but I also have it if I convert a mission to the new format. the camera will just not move at all.

I use a custom mod pack that I'm developing and the F-18 mod.

The mission was also using these mods.

Same issue with ACE3 mod. Errors " '/' is not a class " in the middle of the screen and "Ace interaction failed to compile for some units (try adding CBA_enable_auto_xeh.pbo)" note in bottom banner after returning to Eden editor from preview. Added cba_enable_auto_xeh.pbo from options folder and had same result.

Im using the Eden Editor and since the last update im getting this erorr message:

this message only appears after returning from in-game to the Eden Editor and after that message i cant ROTATE with the mouse in the 3D Eden Editor.

i tryed it with and without ANY mods just arma3 vanilla ver. and this error message still apearred.

After some further testing it would come to seem like ACE plays a hand in this, atleast when it comes to frequency, there it's a 99% chance that the camera issue appears.

Strangely enough it would also come to seem like the chance of the camera issue happening without any mods at all lies around 5%

Hello, is the camera locking up issue still valid for you?
We applied a fix in rev. 133344, if you still experience it in today's Dev branch, please let me know. Thank you.

hi, i personally had that camera locking issue but since that fix its gone and i dont have this issue anymore. Thank you veryyyyyyyy much =)

Glad to see that, can anyone else confirm that it works, please?

After fiddling around a lot with different mods and entirely without it seems like the problem has been fixed, atleast for an unmodded arma, unless I was really lucky (or unlucky, depending how you look at it) and avoided the bug entierly, it also seems like the amount of mods that lead to the bug has gone down, the only mod that I was able to reproduce the bug with was ACE, so I think the problem has been solved, atleast on your end.

Thanks for the confirmation!

This bug still happening on my end.

Some points:

  1. This is how the editor looks like after returning to it:
  1. I managed to move the camera for half a second one time, before it froze.
  1. From my testing, it seems that the culprit is the ACE3 mod. Version 3.4.1
  1. My issue ticket on ACE3's github:

Same issue. Use ace3 as mod. After previev cant move camera

I can report that this issue still exists after placing down a playable man and previewing the scenario. You can delete the man, preview the empty man from a birds-eye view then go back to eden editor with camera movement. However as soon as you place a soldier down and preview the editor will freeze upon returning.
