8. Manipulating objects independently

While normal use of SPIERSview is to keep objects in the same position relative to each other, there is sometimes a need to shift, rotate and scale certain objects independently. This facility, turned on or off using the Reposition Selected command under the Mode menu, is especially useful in conjunction with multi-piece datasets (see below).

With this mode selected, all rotates and shifts made using the mouse or menu commands affect only the objects currently selected in the object panel, as do any scale changes (see below).

Reposition Selected mode is not available when SPIERSview is running in Finalised/VAXML mode.
