The Translate tool allows you to manipulate the X and Y coordinates of a selected object. Press
T to activate it.
With an object selected, click and drag in the empty area of the stage in both X and Y.
If no object is selected, Nima allows you to marquee select (regardless of what tool is active). If an object is already selected, you can marquee select by holding
SHIFT (to add) or
ALT (to subtract).
Use the handles to limit your movements to just one axis. You can also use the handles to scale and rotate your selection, without having to switch to their respective tools. Note that when using the scale handle, you can hold
SHIFT to lock the scale proportions.
By default Nima displays translate handles in Local space. Switching to World or Parent coordinates will update the handles accordingly. The Selection panel will continue to show Local coordinates regardless of what axis options are enabled for the handles. This is because all animation is done in Local coordinates.
