What is Move Command?

An object in the drawing workspace can be translated from one place to another place with the aid of the move command. It is used to displace the object from an initial position to the required position as specified by the user. The user has complete control over the displacement of the object. He can control the units to which the object needs to be moved within the workspace. For more accurate positioning, displacement functionality within the move command can be further specified by the user.

How to Enable Move Command?

The two standard methods of enabling the move command are explained below:

  1. First Method:
    In this method, the command is enabled by clicking on the icon shown below which is present in the ribbon panel.
