    • Offset: See and Set the current distance from the origin to the slice plane
    • Origin: The location of the center of the slice. It is also related to the reformat widget origin associated to the selected slice.
    • Center: This button will adjust the slice Origin so that the entire slice is centered around 0,0,0 in the volume space.
    • Normal: Allow to set accurately the normal of the active slice.
    • Reset: Reset the slice to transformation to the coresponding orientation -- The orientation could be either "Axial, "Sagittal", "Coronal" or "Reformat".
    • Normal X: Set the normal to a x axis.
    • Normal Y: Set the normal to a y axis.
    • Normal Z: Set the normal to a z axis.
    • Normal to camera: Set slice normal to the camera.
