Dragging (Moving) Objects

Many tools enable you to move objects in the scene by selecting and dragging them.

To drag objects:

  1. Select one or more objects.

  2. Click and drag a selected object to move it. If multiple objects are selected, dragging one object drags all of the selected objects.

The exact behavior when dragging objects depends on the specific tool and type of object. For example:

  • Props dragged in one of the Prop Tools will have their heights automatically projected to the ground surface.

  • Lane marking nodes dragged in the Lane Marking Tool will be constrained to lie along the lane boundary curve.

  • Dragging a road control point in the Road Plan Tool might automatically update other roads to enforce tangential continuity.

Many objects can also be dragged during initial creation. Refer to Digitizing (Creating) Objects.
