The Move Plugin moves object or a selection of vertices, edges or faces.
The movement can be done with a \ref Manipulator or, for more precision, the \ref property_window.
The movement can be done with the <a href="../user/manipulator.html"><b>Manipulator</b></a> or, for more precision, the <a href="../user/manipulator.html#property_window"><b>Property Window</b></a> .
\section Summary
\li \ref Manipulator
\li \ref move_mode
\li \ref property_window
\section Manipulator
The manipulator is used to rotate, translate or scale objects.
To set the manipulator in the view, use the toolbar to enable the move mode.
Then double click on the selected place (in case of translating a selected area) or anywhere on the object.
Rotation can be done by clicking on one of the circles around the manipulator or on one of the arrow tips.
Hold the mouse button and move the mouse to apply a rotation.
The rotation axis is the arrow tail of the clicked axis, or the arrow which has the same color as the circle.
The arrow tails control translations. Click on them and move the mouse to translate the object
in arrow direction. Click on the center for translations parallel to the viewing plane.
\note the translate/rotate button shown below has to be activated.

For resizing an object, press \<Control\> or the button below and then use the manipulator.
The arrows show the direction of the scale modifying.

There are also options for manipulating the manipulator itself.
\note No objects will be modified with these options.
All operations can be done by using the toolbar buttons and they also provide some shortcuts.
\li Use the mouse wheel while pointing on the manipulator for resizing.
\li Press \<Shift\> to rotate it.
\li There is no shortcut for translation, so use the button in the toolbar
\section move_mode Move Mode
You can move an object in 3D space or you can also move
a selection of vertices, edges or faces of an object.

and start by using the \ref Manipulator, or if the \ref property_window is open, click on "Object"
and start by using the <a href="../user/manipulator.html"><b>Manipulator</b></a>, or if the

Keep in mind, you has to select some data.
\section property_window Property Window
To open the property window, right-click on the manipulator and click on "Set Properties".
The property window provides several options to set the position/direction of the manipulator and
for translation, rotation and scaling. You can manipulate the object or only a selection of it (see \ref move_mode for more information).
It is simple to use:\n
\li Choose the operation that should be done. They are written on the left buttons (e.g. translation).
\li Write your values into the edit boxes next to the buttons.
Which axis/angle the edit boxes describe is shown above of the boxes (e.g. first edit box after button translation is for the x-axis).
\li Click on the left operation button.
