Default orientating manipulatortool to object

Hai there!!

probably a simple question with a simple answer, but I can't find the tool to do it.
I want to orientate the manipulator tool, for example Movetool, to the axis in which the object is orientated, so that the object will move in it's own "directions" and not the screens...

I've attached an image to clarify it.

Thanx in advance!!

double click on the move tool in the tool box. This will go into the tool pref and select local instead of world.

For a vertex, I don't think world vs. local vs. object matters. The only option that would change it is normal.
