Moving Sketches

To move a sketch:

  1. In an active sketch, click Modify Sketch Tool_Modify_Sketch.gif (Sketch toolbar) or Tools > Sketch Tools > Modify.
  2. In the dialog box:
    • To move the sketch geometry incrementally, under Translate, type a value for X value and Y value and press Enter.
    • To move a specified point of the sketch to a specific location, under Translate, select Position selected point and click a point in the sketch. Type a value for X value and Y value and press Enter.
      The Modify Sketch tool translates the entire sketch geometry in relation to the model (including the sketch origin). The sketch geometry does not move relative to the origin of the sketch.
    • To move a sketch in the graphics area, use the pointer:
      • Press the left-mouse button pointer_mouse_move_rotate.png to move the sketch.
