Having Played around a bit more with the Gizmo Manager, I am loving it. At the same time, I wished there was a way it supported planar movements along with the axis, rotation etc.
I have managed to modify BJS to get what I wanted. I hope this can be default option.
Not being a developer, I didn’t want to mess around with the source code, but I do have the changes to pass on, if that is of any help.
