This will pop up the dialog shown below. You can modify the position of the selected items by typing directly in the dialog, or you can use the interactive manipulator in the 3D viewer to drag items interactively. If the “snap” button is toggled in, movement will be limited to 100mm and 45° steps. The translation and rotation is relative to the work station origin.
