Move by Points

Recommended Posts

while this is great for those who were from the acad background, is there any reason why it brings the moved object to the front of other objects?

I suspect it's because it acts as a duplicate command.

Is there a way around this?

If not, this is as bad as a bug.

Moving an object should not affect anything but the location sidewise.

I could not find any way around it, but moving it to the front should not be the default way - anyway!

I believe there still are better tools available at VectorDepot. Have been for many years...

uh...steer clear of those old move/copy tools at Vector Depot....they're buggy. They freak around with the undo stack somehow - very dangerous.

Bugsubmit it, if you think it's a bug

Wishlist it, if it's just your preference

Really? I have not used them since I have my own tools for this and they've always behaved well. (I still use them!)

After trying out VW 2008's Move By Points, I found that VectorBits' VectorMove has better features: the outline of the object as you move it, the polyline multiple copy (instead of the straight line multiples), and the stored previous distance value for the next move.

Another essential VectorBit is the Stretch tool, which stretches a marquee of objects in one direction. And ChainMaker is great for joining lines into polys, because it can join gapped line ends. And the 12.5 versions all work with VW 2008.

Regarding VectorBits' VectorMove (as used in VectorWorks 2008), there is a bit of a problem in working with a drawing in rotated plan mode. VectorMove cannot adjust the angle of moving to the rotated plan - something I just discovered. Otherwise it seems to work fine.
