You can do this by using the component editor. Window>General Editors>Component Editor. Select the "Polygons" tab. There you'll get the vertex.x, y, and z positions in world space. Select the vertices that you'd like to edit, and they'll show up in there.
Hope this helps.
Imagination is more important than knowledge.
