Click on Gizmo handles for precise movements?

When using Dimension, clicking on the gizmo handles allows for precise movement, which has been a critical part of my workflow. I work with hundreds—sometimes thousands—of elements arranged in specific patterns, which need to be moved in object space, not world space.

 

Am I missing something, or is it not possible to do this in S3D Stager?

To clarify, clicking the gizmo handles brings up a HUD asking for distance, degrees, or scale factor. When I click on these in S3D Stager, nothing happens.

Hello, you can change the world space by using the shortcut T in Stager. Is it what you're re looking for?

Thanks for responding! I'm aware of the shortcut T to toggle between world and object space. In Dimension, you can also click the handles to enter an exact amount to move/rotate/scale:

Which allows for very precise adjustments whether in world space or object space. If my object is rotated, then I have no way of moving so exactly in object space, since the Transform tab of the Properties inspector only adjusts position within world space.

Ok i see, i don't think it's possible in Stager. You need to set all parameters in the propertie panel.
