I've been trying to use PICK OBJECT to move objects along the X and Z axes (for starters) but I was having a problem with the objects "jumping" on the initial mouse click.

+ Code Snippet

It seemed as if mouse movement was being registered when there was none. So I added 2 print lines to monitor the mouse movement, and then the jumping stopped!

+ Code Snippet

Does this make sense?
Does using Mousemove reset/refresh the values or something?

The safe way of doing all this is to read your mouse values once per sync loop and store those values in variables. If you need to use them more than once per loop then refer to the stored values rather than do another function call. Among other things that avoids complications arising from the possibility that the values might have changed between the multiple calls.

Great tip... much obliged!

I probably should have thought of that, but apparently I need to buy a book on common sense.
