    Hi All!

    I'm a 10+ year SketchUp user, and have been developing SketchUp plugins for about 5 years. I've been playing in Unity for a week or so and learned a lot so far!

    However, I find the move and rotate tools (?) not to be very efficient all the time. Very often I want to move or copy an object by a vector defined by two vertices outside the object. I often also want to rotate, or rotate copy, around another point than the center or pivot (local origin).

    Is this possible in Unity?

    If not, is there any API for creating your own tools within Unity, similar to there is for SketchUp?

    Thanks
