How do I use the Armor Stand Editor?
To pose an armor stand, we'll need 2 things:
-A potato
-An Armor Stand (of course)

Clicking the potato in your tool bar will open the ASE menu.
Each setting in the menu has a specific purpose listed on the image below:

How does each tool work?
To use a tool, select it inside the ASE menu. Then, right-click on the armor stand to apply it!
X, Y, Z Axis: Selects the direction you're moving a part of the armor stand. E.g If you've selected the head and the Z axis, it will move the head in one direction; Selecting the Y axis will move it in another direction, etc..
(You can also change the axis by shifting and using your scroll wheel)
Head position: Applying this tool will move around the head.
Body position: Will move around the main body.
Arms position (left and right): Will move around the arm selected.

Legs position (left and right): Will move around the leg selected.

Copy armor stand: Will copy the armor stand and will automatically switch to paste mode.
Paste armor stand: Will paste the properties and positions of the copied armor stand to another when clicked.

Armor stand inventory: Opens the armor stand's inventory, you can give it armor and items to hold.
Reset pos: Will reset the armor stand's position (will not clear items or properties).

Show arms: Will show the armor stand's arms.
Toggle size: Will toggle the armor stand's size (Small/big).
Toggle visibility: Will toggle the armor stand's visibility (held items are still visible).
Toggle base plate: Will toggle the armor stand's base plate.
Toggle gravity: Will toggle whether the armor stand is affected by gravity or not (useful when using move tool).

Rotate armor stand: Will rotate the armor stand.
Move armor stand: Will move the armor stand, select an axis for direction.
Coarse adjustment: Changes to the armor stand will be done fast and brutal.
Fine adjustment: Changes to the armor stand will be done slower and more delicate.

Simply select a tool and apply it on an armor stand by clicking it with the potato.

For example, if I want to add arms to my armor stand, I select the "Show arms" porperty
and click on the armor stand.

If I want to move its arms, I select the "right/left arm position" and click to adjust the arm.

If I want to change the direction I'm moving the arm in, I can select another "axis".

If I want to make more delicate changes to the armor stand I can select "Fine adjustment".

Other tips and tricks

Some other little things to make your life easier!

Pressing the F key while holding the potato while looking at an armor stand
will activate a mask that will make your tools only affect that armor stand;
useful when you've got lots of them stuck together! To disable this, look away
and press F again.

You can do some tasks in reverse by punching or right-clicking the armor stand!
For example if when you right-click the armor stand and the arm goes in one direction, punching it will rotate it
in the opposite direction!


You can name armor stands by renaming a name tag in an anvil and right-clicking them with the tag.
You can even make some cool holograms by setting the armor stand to invisible using the invisible property!
(It even works with color codes!)

You can also make some creations all out of armor stands;
Take a look at this fish!

Or this cute baby by @PigMatt !

(Invisible armor stands wearing heads moved close to each other using the move tool and the invisible property)

Anyways, that's it for now!
If you have any questions/problems feel free to send me a message!
