Can anyone please let me know if there is a way to move objects in vertical direction (z-axis) in 3d views, without having to turn the view everytime to be of frontal direction. I would like to move entire objects - for example mass objects - up or down directly in a 3d view of random orientation, now only top- or bottom face can be moved vertically, the whole object moves only on xy -plane. Can vertical movement of an object be done intuitively graphically and/or can it be be numerically, feeding coordinates?
Have tried all sources, but cannot find solution, and refuse to believe that Revit would be the only 3d/bim software on planet where direct vertical manipulation of objects is not possible.
Thanks a lot in advance!

Solved! by tys. See the answer in context.
In a 3D view, if you select the move tool, by default, it will allow you to move objects in the X and Y coordinates, but there is a way to move objects in the Z coordinate, click on one of the view cube elevations, you will still be in a 3D view, looking at it from a side, and youwill be able to move the objects in the Z coordinate, as soon as you orbit, you will be back on the X and Y coordinates.
