  1. Components to Move: Select components to move (to deselect components: press shift + left mouse button). After you select the component and click middle mouse button moving handle will occur in the center of the gravity of the part
  2. Transform: You can change the motion type from the box near the “Motion”. (I always use dynamic. It is enough for all movements.)
    Dynamic handle movements.
