How to move objects in STYLY

You can specify the positions of your 3D objects in STYLY.  Both linear and non-linear movements can be applied to place your objects in the desired spot.

The MOVE feature [shortcut: “W” on the keyboard] of STYLY allows you to do this. It provides you with a set of squares and arrows.  The arrows are for linear movements along a single axis.  And the squares pinned to the object control the object more freely and non-linearly (along two axes simultaneously).  Just left click on and hold the appropriate square or arrow, and drag the mouse to move the object.

Open STYLY editor or click here to learn how to use STYLY editor

Once the Editor is loaded, you can see a pop-up window. Using the two options on the pop-up, you can either create a scene or use a scene you have already created. It requires no download and at the same is automatically saved in the cloud space. You can either create a scene or go to a previously created scene.


Then, after pressing the W key, you will see a three-colored box and three arrowheads. The three arrows are there for moving the object along a single Cartesian axis.


Particularly, the red arrow is for moving the 3D object horizontally (along the x-axis).

The green arrow is for moving it vertically (along with the y-axis).

And the blue arrow is for moving it forward and backward (along the z-axis).

While the arrows move the object only along a single axis, the squares move it along two axes simultaneously. Specifically, the blue square is for moving the object simultaneously along the x and y-axes.

When you press and hold on one of the arrows it would change its color to yellow and let you manipulate the object's position with respect to its axis. You can move object's location freely by click and hold in the center box.

So, with this set of arrows and squares that STYLY provides, you can move your object(s) to anywhere you would like.
