I've noticed in the Move Entities you can't freely move "X" and keep "Y" at "0". I want to move it freely one in on axis. If this possible? Picture this, I want to move freely to the left or right but not go up or down..
Hi Todd ,
is there an example image you could upload or a source file?
I am not sure what you mean , you can easily move in one direction using the combo box (see attached video)
if you mean drag the sketch in one direction it would be easier to use constraints for this unless there is a specific reason why you would need to use move entities.
Understand that. It's not free motion. I'll get a vid together on it
Are you talking sketches or parts??
Ok lets give this a try. What I'm doing for now is in the sketch. In my video I have a item I just want to drag to the left with "Y" at "0". this saves you from entering a random number. Just pick and drag in the desired direction. This was something I was very accustom to along with 3 point rotate.

My suggestion would be that you start by constraining your geometry.
1st constrain all the lines and arcs to each other then constrain the location to your "Y"
Quick sketch attached is NOT fully constrained but would allow the geometry to stay relative to each other while allowing you to move within the sketch. Adding a vertical dimension will fully constrain your scratch and allow you to drag your geometry after you exit the sketch.
Bottom line is fully constrain your sketches.
The sketch I showed you was just taken from a DXF file and wasn't fully constrained at the time. I probably should shown a different example...LOL Job I'm redoing is a old job so we have to extract geometry from the DXF's. Anyways, Point I'm trying show was how the freedom to drag in one direction in the Move command would benefit you. It's like not having to enter a "X" distance, just pull to the left/right where you want and "Y" stay's at "0".
