Giant rectangle showing when I select an item?

Whenever I select something on my canvas, I get this big blue rectangle below my selection that grows or shrinks as I zoom in/out. This just happened today, does anyone know how to turn this off?? It’s super annoying and I have no idea what it’s used for

Does restarting Figma or computer help? This seems like the selection size box without text for some reason. Try turning the Show dimensions on objects setting off and on again.


I’m not sure what caused it but it must have been a glitch! As soon as I restarted the desktop app it went back to normal
