    I'm glad you are using the 'first version' Temporary Move tool. Your comments about the coordinate system / object axis is a common concern.

    I can share that the team is working on the next version of the Temp Move tool, but I don't know if address this particular issue. A solution for this may require more research.

    This is a common request to be able to change axis to be set to "project North" in lieu of "True North". This would help not just in using temp object move tool, but also when dimensioning use point to point as that is based off of the xyz relative to True North as well. This is on our Revizto wishlist.

    Hi Mike, starting in the 5.13.6 release you can set a custom axis for moving objects. After you are in the "move objects temporarily" click the "..." at the bottom right menu and set the custom Axis.

    So after using this temp move option, how come we are not able to input inch or feet symbol on the axis text area? When moving element temporarily, the axis show the element being moved in feet and inches, but when i try to manually input a value in the axis, it will only move in feet. Please update so we can either input inches and feet symbol or allow us to enter accurate value in decimals in which your whole value should be based on inches instead of feet. Thank you
