Moving surfaces

Hi Guys
Really enjoying the new beta capabilities.

I am building a back up printer. It is based on a commercial kit for the basic frame. But will be fitted with a different controller board, stepper drivers, LCD etc. and up graded to the latest marlin soft wear.

The design of the LCD surround was very straight forward with the new beta software upgrade.

I built a simple model of the screen.

Then created the draft surround

The test print went well.

But the control sits slightly too high on one side.

Now here is where you guys come in.

I need to make the blue face move into the surround by .2mm. But I get a reference to another point on the screen when I try and move it.

Is it possible to have the relative distance from the original face displayed.

Keep up the good work guys. The product is getting better every release.

Kind regards
Paul
