# Moving Vertices

The Move Vertices option is also available as a right-click shortcut for individual vertices:

• By entering two points defining the move.
• By a relative move
• By a distance and angle
• By entering the new point directly (right-click option only)

To move one or more vertices:

1. First make sure the Stope Section view is selected.
2. Select Move Vertices from the toolbar, the Edit sub-menu of the Boundaries menu, or the right-click menu.
3. Select the vertices you wish to move. You can select individual vertices by clicking on them with the left mouse button or multiple vertices by drawing a window around them (click and hold the left mouse button, and drag to create a window).
4. When you are finished selecting, press ENTER or right-click and select Done .
5. You will then be prompted to enter the information defining the move. This can be done in several different ways:
1. Enter two points defining the move
2. Relative Move
3. Distance and Angle
6. After you have entered the move information, all of the vertices selected in Step 3 will be translated from their original positions according to the move you have defined.

It is suggested that the user experiment with these options to become familiar with the many different editing capabilities of CPillar.

## Enter Two Points Defining the Move

The move can be defined by entering two points (a start and endpoint), which define a vector for the move:

• You can enter the two points graphically with the mouse, or with the keyboard in the prompt line. The two points defining the move can be anywhere in the x-y plane, only their relative positions are important.

• If you are using graphical entry, you can use the Snap option to assist with the entry of the points.

• TIP: If you enter 0 , 0 in the prompt line, as the first point defining the move, then you can enter the actual x and y displacement as the second point. For example, if you want to move a boundary 5 meters to the left, enter 0, 0 as the first point, and â€“5 , 0 as the second point.

## Relative Move

A shortcut for directly defining the move in terms of relative x, y displacements is to type the "@" symbol in the prompt line followed by the relative x and y displacement of the move.

For example, type:

• @5 -7 followed by ENTER, to move the selected vertices 5 units to the right and 7 units down.

## Distance and Angle

A move can also be defined in terms of a distance and an angle. Type the "@" symbol followed by the distance and the "<" symbol followed by the angle, in the prompt line.

For example, type:

• @5 <45 followed by Enter, to move the selected vertices a distance of 5 units in a direction of 45 degrees.

• Note that the angle is defined relative to the positive X (horizontal) axis, and the counter-clockwise direction is positive. For example: 0 degrees = move right, 90 degrees = move up, 180 degrees = move left, 270 (or -90 degrees) = move down.

## Right-Click Shortcut for Individual Vertices

The Move Vertices option is also available as a right-click shortcut for individual vertices:

1. Locate the cursor over a vertex that you wish to move.
2. Click the right mouse button, and the vertex will be "selected".
3. A popup menu will appear, from which you can select various Move options:
1. Move To
2. Relative Move
3. Distance and Angle

### Move To

The Move To option allows you to enter the coordinates of the new point directly, either graphically with the mouse or in the prompt line. For example, if you want
a vertex moved to the coordinates 5,20, then simply enter the coordinates 5,20.

### Relative Move

Enter the relative x,y displacement. To aid with graphical entry, the relative x,y displacement of the current cursor location is displayed as a tooltip as you move the mouse. For prompt line entry, the numbers are entered directly in the prompt line (see the note below).

### Distance and Angle

Enter a distance and angle (degrees). To aid with graphical entry, the distance and angle of the current cursor location is displayed as a tooltip as you move the mouse. For prompt line entry, the numbers are entered directly in the prompt line (see the note below).

When you use the right-click Move Relative or Move by Distance and Angle options, you do not use the special characters "@" (for relative move) or "@" and "<" (for distance and angle move), as described for the Move Vertices option above. The relative move, or distance and angle, is typed directly in the prompt line, without these characters.
