After I draw and clone an object, I wish to place the clone near the original. Normally this is easy. But if the clone is higher and closer in the view I cannot get the thing anywhere near the original. If I move it down, it gets closer. then it pops in front or behind. I reorient and the clone is high and right but looks about the same plane but when I move it down and left it pops in front.
How can one move on one axis only. I’d like to move it Down. Reorient. Left. Reorient. Into Position. Is there a way to move an item along only one axis?
As an example, albeit a simple one, in the attachment I have the near box selected. I want the bottom left corner of the near box to be placed at the end of the line off the bottom right corner of the far box. During the move it moves left/forward along the green axis, not right/backward, and keeps popping back and forth along the green and red axes, usually toward the front. This is driving me crazy!
I read somewhere about shift constraining the axis direction, but to no avail.
