    "MOVE"


    I use translate to join sections of a quilt pattern(drawing) together (this
    can be polyline segments as well)
    Harvey provided a method for moving an object around to be 'relative' to
    another object. I don't see this happening for use with a quilting pattern.
    ( I can use it for work with our CNC )

    For a quilt pattern, think of 'Translate' as a method of joining segments
    of a pattern, creating a continuous line, as the lines will be joined. I do
    this by selecting a 'segment' to be joined with another. With the "endpoint
    snap on" click on the endpoint of the segment you want joined to another,
    then click on the endpoint of the segment you are joining to.

    Translate is "To transfer from one place or condition to another. ", move on
    the other hand can cover a multitude of actions that can confuse the issue.

    Transform is "To change markedly the appearance or form of", is that not
    what transforming does in Autosketch?
