Hi!

Software : 3D Studio Max 8.0

My problem is simple : I have two vertexes, one is in place on a plane and the other is slightly off on one axis. How do I align the second vertex to the first, without getting through the cumbersome process of finding the coordinates of the first vertex?

I ask this, because at some moment I might have 100 vertexes that I need to align on one axis for instance to another 100 vertexes.

Now, the procedures I tied and do not work :

- scale does not work as it moves both vertexes trying to get them to a common center, and the first is already into position and I do not want it to be moved

- align - I tried all the options inside, but the results are all unwanted and chaotic, none of them coming close to what I want

Is there any elegant method to align a vertex to another vertex that is already in place, a method that does not require selecting and deselecting vertexes in order to find the coordinates of the target vertex?

Thank you in advance!

Best regards!
