Move elements

Moving graphical elements

Left-click:  Elements to be moved > Modify - Move > Any point in the drawing area > Another point in the drawing area > Esc to finish.

The distance and direction from the first point to the second point represent the distance and direction to be moved.

The points can be outside of the elements to be moved.

However, to move a point of the elements to a precise position, select the point as the first point and select the precise position as the second point.

Alternatively, use keyboard up, down, left and right arrows to move approximately after selection.
