That is a built in base survey point. You can hide it via drop down menu on default toolbar. 

Thanks I did finally figure it out it wasn't easy to turn it off not really sure how i did to be honest. I've never used that feature since I like the control I have over an object north 



And it won't print.

Lenovo Thinkpad - i7-1270P 2.20 GHz, 32GB RAM, Nvidia T550, Windows 11

thanks unfortunately i don't have the default tool bar on so getting rid of it is by chance and it seems to be popping up without input from me that i can tell. 

Still looking?
