I'm using blender 2.8 and my simple scenario is: a plane and a cube mesh.

I want to move the cube on the plane without using the G command on the Z axis of the cube mesh, because doing freehand it's not perfect.

What's the best practice using blender tools?

    $\begingroup$ if you place your cube on the right Z location, then you can move it with shift Z so that it doesn't move anymore on the Z axis, you can also lock its location on the Z axis on the 3D view N panel, or even give it a Limit Location constraint... $\endgroup$ – moonboots Aug 13 at 14:59
