Translation moves an object or group of objects in a specified direction. When an object is selected, a bounding box appears around the object.
To translate a selected object to another location:
- Position the pointer inside the bounding box. The mouse pointer changes to the translation pointer
- Drag in the desired direction. The entire object moves to the new location.
For information on creating a surface visualization which you can translate such as the one shown in the previous figure, see Working with Surfaces.
