2D shape in 3d space

Hi! I have a kinda old version of SKU (7, never liked 8 for some reason), so I’m wondering how (if possible at all), could I raise up a 2D shape (like, say, a rectangle) up a height without pushing or pulling it? I’m trying to create a sign for a gas station (that could, say, be seen from the highway)

The short answer is yes if I understand the question. Use move tool , select total rectangle and move up the distance you want or using the move tool enter [,] which is a relative move in z direction while keeping the x,y location the same
