Realign imported model to scene

Folks I'm a newbie here and need a little help somehow I accidentally shifted my entire imported model (large file) about 6 feet away from all the scene objects fromLlumion. Is there an easy way to grab either and nudge back into place?? Also can an earlier version that was saved be restored sort of like registry files in Revit? Or when you "overwrite" save it is literally gone forever. Appreciate comments suggestions. Thanks.

I Think I found a workable solution; import mode, select properties XYZ coords box comes up get set to a view with objects that you know should align, tweak numbers for a few minutes and perfect alignment!  :7

You can as you did use the properties dialogue, but rather than tweak, just simply get the XYZ property of the object you want to align to, and then enter those in the object to be aligned.

So. although that's one way, it's perhaps not the easiest.

Simply follow the Align objects steps using the Context Menu --> Transform --> Align.  See LUMION 3: Tips, Tricks and Shortcuts  Align command about 12/ way down page.

The important action here is to get the order of selection correct:
1. Select objects to be aligned
2. Select the object you want aligned TO – the master or fixed point
3. Context Menu --> Transform --> Align.

Great thanks for the tip that sounds much easier.
