The Adjust-tool lets you select, resize, rotate, and duplicate elements in the scene.
Menu > Tools > Adjust
Select one or more boxes by clicking with the pointer.
Use the touchpad to select the functions Move, Resize or Rotate.
Depending on the mode, different handles appear on the object, so-called gizmos.
Select a gizmo with the pointer and hold down the trigger to move or rotate it.
With the multiple selection you can also change several boxes at the same time.
On the control in VR you will find more functions. You can touch it and position it as you like.
Functions on the touchpad
Mode and duplicate
Touch the object directly by clicking one or more boxes with the pointer to move it freely in all directions.
Grab an arrow to move the object only in this axis.
Touch the plus to duplicate the object in one axis.
Grab an arrow to rotate the object around this axis.
Touch either the sphere or the face of the object to resize it in the respective direction. Make sure that only boxes with the same rotation are selected.
You can resize an entire object by selecting a single group and setting the adjust tool to "Resize".
When you drag a sphere, an area appears in the centre. All objects touching this area will be scaled, all other objects in the group will only be moved. This allows you to scale symmetrical objects such as tables or shelves without distorting their legs.
- Objects in the middle are always scaled. Try not to place objects in the middle of objects that you want to scale freely. Try to place objects slightly offset or use the edit groups function to correct mistakes afterwards.
- Rotated objects: The faces of the objects should be orthogonal to the direction of resizing.
- Only boxes are resized. All elements that cannot be enlarged in any other way remain excluded from resizing. This applies to load carriers, tools, avatars and imported CAD data.
Activate "Multiple selection" if you want to edit several objects at the same time or create groups.
The indicator at the end of the pointer shows whether multiple or single selection is selected.
In case of multiple selection, this indicator fills up with each selected object. You can use it to check if there are still elements selected outside your field of view.
Drag a box in the air with the pointer to select multiple elements quickly.
To do this, hold down the trigger. When you let go, everything touched by the box is selected.
Functions on the "UFO"
Choose "World coordinates" if you want to edit the selected object in relation to the world coordinate system.
Select "Adjust remotely" if you want to manipulate distant, very large or very small elements. The different handles are then displayed detached from the object on the control in front of you.
Select "Align Rotation" if you want to realign an object perpendicular to the world. This button is only active if you have selected a single rotated object or group.
Overcoming large distances (with touchpad function "Move"): Hold an object while teleporting to "take" it with you.
In the settings window you can set the size of the steps in which you can move, rotate and zoom in on objects.
