This article describes the Move functionality in Tribby3d, which allows users to move existing elements in the document.
The Move tool can be used to quickly relocate existing elements in the document. You simply select a set of elements you wish to move, click the Move tool and finally define a translation vector by entering a start point and end point.
Follow the steps below to move a selection of elements in the document:
- Make a selection of elements in the document you wish to move. You can either use the rectangular selection approach or click based selection. They can also be combined with the ctrl and shift keys. Read more about how selection works here.
- Click on the Move button in the toolbar on the left hand side.
- Note that the content of the active selection will be displayed in the command panel to the right (for instance “4 columns in selection”).
- Define a translation vector by selecting a start point and end point from the viewport. The translation vector will define where the moved elements end up.
