List of Prompts

The following prompts are displayed.

Select objects.

Specify base point or [Displacement].

Specify second point or <use first point as displacement>.

The two points you specify define a vector that indicates how far the selected objects are to be moved and in what direction.

If you press Enter at the Specify Second Point prompt, the first point is interpreted as a relative X,Y,Z displacement. For example, if you specify 2,3 for the base point and press Enter at the next prompt, the objects move 2 units in the X direction and 3 units in the Y direction from their current position.


Enter coordinates to represent a vector

The coordinate values that you enter specify a relative distance and direction.
