Tab key to get axis not budging model when trying to drag it

On a big model, I usually zoom in where I want to drag-move it to then press Tab while my mouse is over the model to see its axis. I then drag the axis arrow and move it while Tab key is still down. If I zoom out till I see where the axis is originally at to use it, I can’t see up close where I want to move it to.

Problem is that it’s not working anymore. Was there an update that disabled this or is it a bug? I couldn’t find in the settings to fix this.

When Tab key is down while mouse is over zoomed in part or model, you see the axis like in the picture. Pivot was not edited.


I found out it was not working when using the left click on trackpad, but it works using a regular usb mouse.
