Position (Move/Copy)
KeyCreator \ Transform \ Mating \ Position-(Move-Copy)

Location: Transform>Mating>Position (or Position Copy)

Note: The information below applies to the move function. Position Copy is the same, except it copies the selected geometry, instead of moving it.

This function moves entities, preserving their orientation.

Using the Function

See the geometry figure below.

  1. Select entities to be moved.

  2. Specify the origin of transformation.

  3. Specify the target point.

  4. Select a position for the Entity Mate, or Skip or Accept to not create an associative Entity Mate.

  5. When the transformation is confirmed, the Command Change dialog appears. You can continue selecting other mating commands in this dialog while the same entities are selected.


From this point forward the target point and transform origin are mated (associative) while the mating marker exists. For mating basics see the Mating Overview.
