    Hi all,

    In creating an action where you want an object to move, is there anyway to click/drag the object to where you want it to move to?

    From what I know, you set the action on the item to be moved, and set the coordinates you want the object to move to.

    This often means when designing the move, I need to move the object to the destination, record the coordinates, put the object back to it’s original placement, then create the action and add the new destination coordinates.

    Is this really the most efficient way of doing this?  Is there not a feature that allows us to set the action, then move the object to where it should fly to and confirm the placement?  Once confirmed the object would return to its original position?

    That’d be a nice UI improvement but no, currently you just drag it to where you want it to be, take note of coordinates, then set the action up accordingly.

    I create a copy of the item and place one in the start position and the other in the end position.  Then mark the end position item as not initially hidden in case I forget to delete it.  Then it’s just a matter of writing down the coordinates before adding the move to action.  I like the idea of being able to temporarily move the item around to find the right place.  I’ll suggest it as an improvement and see what the developers say.

    This way you can also play around with your title at different points to see how the layout will work when in the start or end positions.
