The mod "Precise Editor" breaks both the TweakScale and the B9PartSwitch (maybe other mods too). I had many Exception errors from TweakScale and B9PartSwitch in my log file and when I removed the "Precise Editor" mod everything looks fine.

A way to align parts on axes without having to copy/paste values manually would be very helpful.

 

I'm having trouble understanding what you're looking for here.  Can you elaborate a bit more?

@zolotiyeruki Could you add a button on the Precise Editor 'Vessel' window for editing a root part?

A button will be opening the same editing window, as clicking `P` on the root part.

Editing position of a root part is also editing position of a whole vessel, so it could be there for convenience.

I'm struggling to understand the utility of it.

One of the LGG mod has B hotkey to centralize vessel in the VAB on a specified height, but Modular launch pad need to be on a certain height, so after B hotkey I need to move a vessel strictly up or down, for that I need to find a root part. 

Moving with Shift is free for all axis, so doesn't work there.

I am having an issue where I try to edit a part's rotation value, and it either does not change, or it is changed to a value that I did not enter.

 

The  problem goes like this:

1) select a part with "P"

2) notice the rotation is something like 90.0002

3) change the rotation to 90.0

4) hit "enter" or click out of the box, and the value reverts back to 90.0002

 

the other problem is exactly the same, except after hitting "enter" the new rotation value will show 90.0004.  (this always seems to be additive)

 

 

I can make a video of this if you need.

On the topic of the rotation angles....  I think it is because while in local mode it works in Euler Angles, not absolute angles.  Thus, the angles do not rotate a part directly, but in a chain that adds together.   This is very hard to wrap your brain around, as if the point before was not a perfect 0, then changing a value, will also change any that come after it as they are basically an additive chain.

 

When in Local mode this is why things shift around.  Working in Absolute mode seems to be much easier to understand.

Once again, it would be handy to have a way to copy and paste all part's coordinates (XYZ), instead of going through each field one by one.

I've been thinking along similar lines, but rather a more graphical approach where one first selects a reference part, then the subsequently selected parts are treated as being in symmetry with regards to radial, vertical, and horizontal offset. So one adjusts the first part and the others follow as if in symmetry.  This would be most useful for cases of asparagus staging where the parts are not in a proper symmetry group, which is desired

Hi, I have a feature request. 
Would be good to have a copy-paste feature. For instance if I need to change symmetry settings for a part, but want to keep the position and rotation, I could copy pos/rot in precise editor, then change the symmetry(it breaks position) and restore the pos/rot with precise editor.
