    93 Change to the "Front" camera by going to the "View" menu then selecting it from the "Cameras" sub menu (the default keyboard shortcut is "F") and zoom in. If you take a closer look you'll notice that the wheel isn't correctly aligned to the car.

    95 You can try moving the wheel but you're not going to get it to the right place because it's snapping the movement to a distance that is too big for what you need. [wiki:SnapGrid Movement snap] is a good way to keep standard bricks aligned but it doesn't help when you're trying to align smaller pieces, so now you should either turn it off by clicking on the "Grid Magnet" icon [[Image(snap_grid.png, nolink)]] on the toolbar or select a smaller snap value by using the keyboard (default keys are 1, 2, ..., 9, 0). When you select a different snap value the status bar changes accordingly.

    103 We still need 3 more sets of wheels but instead of adding one at a time we can save some time by copying the one we just added to the clipboard and pasting it back. It works like most other applications, use the toolbar buttons to copy and paste or the keyboard (default keys are Control + C for copy and Control + V for paste).

    105106When you paste a copy it's placed right on top of the one you copied it from, so we need to move it to the other side of the car. Since the car is exactly four "bricks" wide, you can turn [wiki:SnapGrid Movement Snap] back on and set its value to 1 brick to easily position the new wheel on the other side of the car.
