Drag handle control; points and csys (?)

Drag handle control; points and csys (?)

I need to know if there is a way to manage the active dimension when dragging a csys or datum point.

 

To clarify, I need to drag a point around that is spherically bound to a Csys.

I need Z to remain constant and drag only in theta or axis angle.

This is similar with a cylindrical Csys...

You only get one drag handle that manages 3 associated dimensions.

 

How do I switch which of the 3 dimensions are affected while dragging?

 

(this is my current use case but even a cartecian point presents this challenge)

Can you possibly provide an image or video, demonstrating what you are trying to do?  It would help in understading the question.

 

Thanks.

Just make a second CSYS and try controlling which direction it drags.

I need to know I can drag in X or in Y or in Z.  There is only one drag handle.

Good afternoon, TomD.inPDX!

Link to a similar article. Maybe it will be useful for you in solving your problem - "how to retrieve ALL csys parameters":

Thank you, Evgrofov. 

I am hoping for a direct hot-key to switch from input to input when you only have a single grab handle. 

I am trying to get away from having to create my own drag handle/relation to make this work.

This is a UI that programmers had to grapple with at some point.
