Ever had a bunch of objects close to one another? tried moving or deleting one while in close proximity?  I have and find it rather difficult to select the one I need especially if it's similar to all the others around it, the controls overlap one another making selecting the one you want next to impossible. Is there a better way of doing this?

Advanced move is much easier for many objects. You don't have to click the icon anymore in advanced move but it needs more knowledge how to move. To use advanced move press [ESC] in normal move mode.

Hi Ferry, 

 

Thank you for your reply but what is advanced move. I can not see anything when press ESC in normal move mode.

 

Choosing the right icon in bunches of icons is really hard. Please if you have time could you show us the image of advanced move.

 

Thank you and best wishes for all dev guys in new year Embarassed.

In advanced move mode no menu icon is selected so you know you are in that mode. Then you can just click and drag objects! When your mouse is over an object you can move you should see a green box. It doesn't work for trees. Use the context help in that mode for some extra hotkeys.
