Hello, I'm trying to deform an object on an axis using the 'bend' mode. However, it will only let me bend from a point that I pick on the object. How do I set the axis somewhere else, so I can bend on a different plane?

You can draw what I like to call "jig" geometry to snap the Deform tool widget to for this. As a quick example, draw two simple extrudes, select the Deform tool, click on the extrude you want to deform, then you'll see the UI widget is willing to snap to surfaces and edges of the other object, letting you get deformation you couldn't get by snapping only to points on the object being deformed.
