OK so in LW ver 9.3 where did they move the "move pivot" tool to?

It was under translate..

View tab - under the "Layers" section.

Toggle "Pivot" on, which displays the pivot point and automatically puts you in "move" mode. Place it where ever you want, then toggle it off.

And in Layout it it is under Modify/Translate.

In Modeler there's also a "Center Pivot" tool which is also quite useful. It automatically snaps the pivot point to the center of your selected object or layer.
It's not assigned to any menu buttons by default (unless I missed it somewhere), but can be found under Modeler Tools in the Configure Menus panel and placed in a menu group as a button somewhere.

I think Center pivot is under View/Layers in Modeler, by default?

Why so it is. Hopper even had it circled in his screen grab. Maybe it's time for some glasses, LOL.

Well the point is, it's pretty useful. :)

I found them; Actually it's has something to do with my software. It and several other buttons come and go, I can get them if I open/close LW enough times. Go figure, configs maybe?
