Hi,

I'm wondering if there is a way to constrain the movement of a point to a specific angle or the angle of a polygon in which it belongs to.

Example, a polygon is at a 45 degree angle, I would like to move some points of the polygon in one dimension along the angle which the polygon is currently facing.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

Yeah definatly check out translate plus. Think that one gets missed alot.

It will do all of that and more. I think the manual has it farily well documented so you can see what to do with the little blue circles in each mode.
