Hi Anis,

It is, but that is a quite a bit of additional UI to add to end up with the same result.

Here is how you can use the "Distance constraint" with just the current move command to get that same kind of transform:

First, select the circle. Then run the Transform/Move command.

For the first point, click the "reference line".

Then type in 3 <enter> to set a distance constraint.

Now pick a target point - the "Straight snap" will help you to lock the target point perpendicular to the line.

This is how you can use the Move command to do that type of "move by a specified distance".

Is that the same thing as the Xpert Transform that you are asking about? Please let me know if you need something different from that.
