- The Move command is about as straightforward a command…as you'll find in AutoCAD.…Like most commands it doesn't matter…if I have my object selected first…and then invoke the command,…or if I select them after entering the command.…The command is found here on the toolbar,…so I'll click it and select my objects.…I wanna move these squares so that the corner…of this square here sits directly on top…of the corner of this other square over here.…Notice if I get too close I'm actually invoking…the Object Snap Tracking tool.…
Because I'm going to be moving these objects…specific distances I actually want to turn this off.…I'm asked to specify a base point for this.…Because I want this corner to end up on top of this corner…I'm gonna use this as my base point,…and for my second point I'll use this corner right here.…The base point is the handle with which I'm gonna use…to move my objects.…Let's select the objects here…and reenter the command.…I wanna move this square by the width of this circle.…
So I need to move it from here…
