Translate

The Translate icon-transform-translate.png tool provides a precise way to shift objects from one specific point to another. The Translate tool can reposition sketches, sketch profiles, or bodies.

  4. If you want to translate a copy of your selection rather than the original, select Copy.
  5. Select the start and end points of the desired movement. Both points snap to the grid, edges, or vertices.
  6. Select Done.
