    Hello,
    This has been recurring for a couple of versions now.
    Please see the attached video:



    The video is pretty self-explanatory. Talked about this a while ago in a post but couldn't find the right words to describe the problem, so I took a video.

    Basically, on certain files, when trying to move an object locked to either X,Y,Z axis, via the command line, the object will always get displaced on another axis then the one chosen.

    Thanks, hope it all makes sense.

    Hi Lumi_Jay,

    Thanks for reporting this issue. We will look into getting this one fixed.

    In the meantime, a possible workaround that you can use, after starting the Move, and you have selected your reference point for the move, you can use: distance < angle (e.g. 2<90 will move the truss up 2 units at an angle of 90 deg), or you can use: @x,y,z if you know the relative distance in X,Y,Z coordinates, e.g. @0,2,0. Using either of these commands, will help you when trying to move truss, as shown in your video.

    Also, this problem only seems to be happening when a single truss piece is selected for the move. While testing with assembled truss, this seems to be working correctly, and respecting the ORTHO during the relative move when distance is specified.

    Hope this helps.

    Huge help, never knew about the angle movement, this will be extremely useful in the future!
    Thanks a bunch, what a lovely feature. Coming from a MA2 background, I am a big user of the command line and will add this tip to my toolbox :)

    Awesome, hope this new move command makes things easier for you in the future, and we'll work on the bug fix!
    Cheers.
