If the switch is in “Local” mode, the object rotates and moves around its own axis. If the switch is in the “World” mode, the object rotates and moves around the xyz axes in the scene coordinate system.
Tool handle position toggler - Z
If the toggler is in the “Pivot” mode, the object rotates and moves around a specific point that was set by the developer of the object. If the toggler is in the “Center” position, the object rotates and moves around its geometric center.
