    $\begingroup$ Do you mean.. Zoom in and out in camera ? Or actually move the object? $\endgroup$ – Hyenaman Jan 16 '19 at 3:03
  • $\begingroup$ Do you mean as an editor transform (e.g. limit movement to camera axes)? $\endgroup$ – Sazerac Jan 16 '19 at 3:27

    $\begingroup$ I want to move an object closer/farther to the camera's (in the viewport) location. $\endgroup$ – Rix Yarbrough Jan 16 '19 at 22:30

  • $\begingroup$ like I want to press g twice and have the translation axis be the normal of the camera $\endgroup$ – ThorSummoner Oct 18 '20 at 6:39

Change the Transform Orientation to View

Now you just press G to grab along Z.
