Thank you for your quick response Cerbera.
I was aware of the "Enable Axis" palette but, was unaware that I could freely grab a point and move it without the presence of the X, Y and Z axis handles. I've been using C4D for about a year now and have always had those handles present when I move an object. With that being said, I now have a couple more questions. If you don't mind, that is. I just clicked on the same point, that was in the snapshot, and can now move the point but, the aforementioned handles weren't present. I clicked on the point again and viola, the handles appeared. Does that sound glitchy to you or have I been smoking crack for the last year and this is how it has always worked? I'm accustomed to seeing the handles and had never thought that you could move anything without their presence. I know that I can click on a point and move it freely in the viewport but, I positive that the handles were always there. I hope that makes sense and you see my confusion?
