You can either pull down the top menu and go to System and OpenGL and select Emulate NumPad, or if you have a Fn key on your laptop, you can use it to press the letter keys on your keyboard. The regular number keys do not delete your object, they switch to a different layer. For more about layers, s...

Is this what you want? If so, change the pivot point from Median to cursor and place the cursor where you want to r...

Umm... You can press the letter of the axis you want while doing whatever, or you can press the MMB and it'll restrain it to the closest axis.

I disagree with it being a non-user friendly forum. A few of my posts were blocked, but for good reason. Easy to get around the spam block, post attachments, instead of linking to images until you have enough posts. See this quote from moderator Blendenzo: I apologize for the problems you experience...
