Drag Object

I am enjoying the changes to the UI. Some had a bit of a learning curve to use again or find where they are.

The one I am missing is the "drag object to new location" which used to appear when right-clicking on an object
and was really handy to move objects without the need to Edit the object and move it.

Don't know if I have not found it yet or if you guys get rid of it all together.

Please help. If you got rid of it, please bring it back.

    Hi Carlos,

    Thanks for the feedback. Unfortunately it is gone and isn't going to be coming back since it's easy enough to do with using edit, and does not require any additional clicks to use edit to do it. It was a redundant feature and taking up space in the menu. Sorry for the change to your workflow!

    Thanks Julie, you are right! For some reason I thought the previous way was only two clicks, but no, it was the same, 2 clicks and a drag. Keep the good work and sorry for wasting your time.

    At first glance, loss of the ability to drag a marker graphically would
    have been bad and that's what I thought you meant at first... I didn't
    notice that you could drag it during edit, so that is good. Since there's
    no visual grip like there is when editing a polygon or line, maybe a visual
    notification could be added somewhere informing the user that you can drag
    the marker? Either a tooltip near the mouse like during line/polygon
    entry, or a note in the edit popup?

    You might be on to something there, Tom.
