Anyone with sufficient mouse and chair miles will confirm that learning the keyboard short-cuts for frequently used operations vastly speeds up a workflow.
Today I realized that there are things I use the mouse for that should be doable solely from a keyboard context. One of these things is moving a selected vertex using the
My question is: How to enter a new coordinate for an existing selected vertex without using the mouse or the transform toolbar? Preferably
absolute Global /
absolute Local .
Another reason why absolute entry would be welcome
Another example, but this affects multiple selected vertices, is setting the X component of a bunch of vertices to be locally some absolute value. Especially useful when a mirror modifier needs the center vertices to line up nicely and their median
X is not 0. Now the way is to S ,X to restrict the axis, then numeric
0 to unify them (sets them all to the median of their x component), then mouse over to the transform panel and set the median
x to 0.
