Place Doodads on tables etc.

Hello guys,
I saw on many terrains, some doodads (like candles etc.) placed on a table or whatever (= another doodad).

I tried it, too, found a neat table and a good candle model in the UTM and imported them into my map, placed the table and tried to put the candle on it. It didn't work; the candle went into the table, because it has to stand on the ground. I looked in the object editor for something like Doodad-Placing-Height, but there isn't something like this.

So my question is: Is it possible to change the height of doodads in the WorldEditor or do I have to edit the model and put it a bit higher?

Please help! Rep for a solving answer will be given.

Use page up and page down. That moves the high of the doodad. That allows you to make parts of doodads in the ground or a doodad floating.

Of course doodad must be already placed on the map, and selected.

EDIT: Right. I forgot to tell ya to hold CTRL, just like krisserz said ^.^'
