I’ve been struggling a lot with moving components around in my models. The move tool is intuitive when selecting the inference point you want to use on the component you’re moving, but not so much when it comes to the location you want to move the component to. I’m finding the component always moves into the foreground, obscuring the inference point I’m trying to get it to snap to.
My current approach is to select the component I want to move, then select the move tool. From here I click on the point in the component I want to snap to, then spend 5-10 minutes hovering over the inference point I want to snap the component to. I do a lot of zooming in and out, and changing the camera angle, but I’m finding it to be a very tedious process of actually getting the component to move to my inference point.
Is there an easier way of doing this? The component always obscures my inference point, and seems to want to snap into the foreground. Sometimes I’ll get it to snap to the inference point, and it will appear in the correct location, until I left click at which point it shows up in a different random location. It would be much easier if the component didn’t move until I click on the inference point. The component following the cursor around is what complicates things. All the tutorials I’ve found just say to hover over the inference point, but this is very hard to accomplish as the component always seems to want to move in between the camera and the inference point, obscuring it.
