Hi,

Do this all the time, want to grab a hole in a steel plate and move it sideways, is there a delta x,y setting. If you see pic attached. Looks like only ways is minus the distance from the absolute co-ordinates (PITA).

Regards
Brett

Try the Coordinate fields.

Select the subtracted Hole, then use the "@" sign along with a plus or minus value in the X And Y fields.

You could try going into facet edit properties and set it to Extents = Entity, and Coordinates = Extents,   then when you click the hole, the position field should show 0,0,0, (it does for me anyway),  where you can type in a plus or minus figure to go whatever distance is required. this is independent of whatever you have the normal selector set to.
