||Manipulator symbols are displayed for either translating or
rotating the mechanism whenever its joints have associated commands.
- For a joint with a linear command, a linear manipulator symbol is
displayed. To translate the mechanism just drag it using the left mouse
- For a joint with an angular command, a circular manipulator symbol is
displayed. To rotate the mechanism just drag it using the left mouse
- For a joint with linear and angular commands, a linear manipulator
symbol is displayed. To translate the mechanism just drag it using the
left mouse button.
- To access the circular manipulator for rotating the mechanism you
must use the left and middle mouse buttons together and drag as before.
