Rotate: red cube represents the pivot point. You can set a custom pivot point to rotate an object around by grabbing and moving the red cube.

Scale: red cube represents the point from which an object will scale and enabling you to scale objects from specific points in space.

Gray cube will appear when the SubD surface is moved from its original position. You can use this function to move the surface back to the mirror plane.

Simply intersect the head of the Precision Move tool with the gray cube and pull the front trigger.
