 +
 +The viewport handles support the **ctrl** or **shift** modifiers ((**alt** is not available as it pans the view)). However, only either one of them and they need to be pressed before a handle is selected in the viewport.
 +
 +The following handles are available:
 +
 +==== Position ====
 +
 +This is the cross at the centre of the selected UVs. It can be moved to reposition the UVs.
 +Pressing **ctrl** prior to selecting the handle will constrain it to the U of V axis, depending on the position of the mouse cursor.
 +
 +==== Rotation ====
 +
 +The rotation of the selection can be edited interactively using the circle around the centre of the UVs.
 +
 +Just clicking and dragging will change the angle.
 +
 +If **ctrl** is pressed while the handle is selected, the angle will change in steps of 15°.
 +
 +If **shift** is pressed while the handle is selected, the selection will align to the position of the mouse cursor in relation to the selection centre.
 +
 +==== Edge Handles ====
 +
 +There are four handles at the edges of the selection, they scale on the U or V axis respectively.
 +
 +If a handle is selected, moving it will scale and re-position in such a way that the opposite edge is not affected.
 +
 +If **shift** is pressed while selecting the handle, the opposite handle will scale as well.
 +
 +==== Corner Handles ====
 +
 +There are four handles at the corners of the selection.
 +
 +These will scale the UVs along both U and V while the opposite corner doesn't move.
 +
 +Pressing **ctrl** before the handle is selected will scale it proportionally to the current scale.
 +Pressing **shift** before the handle is selected will scale the opposite corner as well.
 +
 +==== Scale Handle ====
 +
 +This will scale the selected UVs proportionally around their centre. Pressing **ctrl** while selecting the handle will scale along the UV directions seperately.
