  • Figure 1 - Translt Interface

Purpose: This interface is used to translate selected nodes. The translation direction and distance can be specified using various methods for maximum flexibility to suit different user needs. Optionally the translations can be performed on multiple copies of the selected elements or nodes. The Tran option is only available when the Copy Element option is activated. This option automatically deselects the original nodes and selects the copied nodes (ready to perform the next operation with the copied set).
