Have you ever had to move an object by lining up the center of one object to the center of a face on another object? But the object movement itself blocks the line of sight? Sure, x-ray mode can work wonders here, but what if there was an extension which allowed you to move an object precisely, by just three clicks?
- Select the object to be moved (it would have to be grouped, I imagine) .
- Select the inference point on that object which needs to attach to the destination (endpoint, midpoint, center, etc).
- Select the outside inference point to which the group will be moved. This would make that object jump to that spot, attached exactly where it needs to attach.
This jumping function would bypass all that actual manual moving, which can be especially awkward when moving/navigating something through the “air” and around other objects. This extension would be more like precisely teleporting an object, and much less like herding cats.
This might be better set up like a cut/paste, but without those actual linear steps, and with a Paste destination and insertion point.
Does a plugin like this already exist? And if so, would someone point me towards it?
