Hotkey: G, R, S

Once you have a selection of one or more elements, you can grab/move G, rotate R or scale S them, like many other things in Blender.

To move, rotate and scale selected components, either use the Translate, Rotate, and Scale buttons, the transform manipulators, or the shortcuts:

G, R, and S respectively. After moving a selection, the options in the Tool Shelf allow you to fine-tune your changes, limit the effect to certain axes, turn proportional editing on and off, etc.

Of course, when you move an element of a given type (e.g. an edge), you also modify the implicitly related elements of other kinds (e.g. vertices and faces).

Pressing G twice enters either Edge Slide or Vertex Slide tool depending on the selection.

You also have in Edit Mode an extra option when using these basic manipulations: the proportional editing . Transform Panel

When nothing is selected, the panel is empty. When more than one vertex is selected, the median values is edited and "Median" is added in front of the labels.

The first controls (X, Y, Z) show the coordinates of the selected vertex or the median point.

The Space radio buttons let you choose if those coordinates are relative to the object origin (local) or the global origin (global).

Global, Local Edge Data

When an edge is selected, the following options are available. more buttons appear:

The crease value of the edge.
