Some nodes rest outside the plane. What is the easiest way to move them into the desired plane?

Answer

In the case of the planes that rest perpendicular to the global coordinate system, it is relatively easy because the coordinate of all points in the plane must be the same. However, if there is a plane that generally rests in space, it is necessary to create a user-defined coordinate system first and then move the node in the user-defined coordinate system.

Yet the fastest option is the 'Project' feature (see the video). This allows you to quickly move the outside nodes to the target plane.
