How to constrain axis when moving brush

Question

When I use the carve brush or sphere brush in voxel mode I usually use a rectangle or circle lasso. With the shape I cut or add to the voxel geometry. I can press the spacebar to move the shape around but I cant lock it on an axis. Sometimes I just want to move directly up or at an angle that makes it match the previous cuts position but I cant constrain the axis. Also if I press a number key to create duplicate shapes and want them in a line there isnt a way to constrain to an axis, so its a bit of guess work to get it perfect. Am I missing a keyboard shortcut here?

 

Thanks for any help with this.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply, I do use the plane option sometimes but mainly for keeping things on the same plane. what I was looking for is to be able to move the lasso but also to constrain its movement along an axis similar to in photoshop when you hold the shift key and it moves the brush only in one direction.

I suppose you could do this with the 2d grid and snapping but that would mean switching that on and off each time I want to do that type of cut
