I had to move several of these lines a few millimeters. These "ears" around a development of a sheet metal had to be lengthened from 5mm to 7mm. So I lenghthened th short pieces and wanted to move the long ones (red line) to the position of the dotted line.

I ended up in deleting the long lines and drawing all long lines again freshly, since I had a better "snap protocol" than the one I had when using the MOVE protocol. Or what would be the easiest way to move the red lines to the dotted position?

Probably I would use the "Stretch" tool combined with the "Coordinate" snap.

No need to lengthen, shorten, moving, deleting blablabla multiple entities .... :wink:
