Move, align a bunch of vertex?
show user profile
How do I move a bunch of vertex to the same point on one axis? I select them all and type in the x or y axis number in the box but it didn't align them all at the same point. Transform type in didn't work neither.
Any help would be appreciated.

try selecting the Vertices and hit the Align Tool at the top.
should work.

hmmm...what I want to do is this, example: I have these vertex at 1x;2y, 2x;3y and 3x;5y. Ok, now I want the y axis of those three vertex to be at the same point, 4y for example 1x;4y, 2x,4y and 3x;4y. Instead of select each vertex and type in the y axis number, I want to select all three and change the number at once. However when I do that it only move my curso to specific point instead of the vertex.
Sometime I have to move 20 more vertex and it frustrating by doing it one by one.

wonder if you could set up a point helper for example at the y co-ords you need then select all the verts, hit the align tool on the top menu and uncheck x and z- you'll probably need to do them one by one i guess but it'll keep the unchecked for every vert you do one by one and might be quicker- i would test this but i'm away from max at the moment
otheise it's probably a scripting thing

also you can scale the vertices to 0% in your chosen axis

But how do you align one vertex to another vertex in the same editable poly?
Lets say to the same y-co-ordinate.
If you pick one vertex and use the 'Align' and click the other vertex, you align it to the poly itself with max, min, center etc...
And if you use the options donvella mentions, you have to choose both vertices and they will align, but end up with the position in the middle of these two vertices.

What i'm looking for is the same function that Align does for objects, but only between sub-objects like vertices, edges etc.

You can use axis constraints. Right-click on the menu bar to open its dialog.

Use it with vertex snap to snap one vert to another but only along the constrained axis (or axes)
