If you click on it, it will take it you the Compatibility Guide, which mentions: The functionality of RotateShape, TranslateShape, AffineShape is provided by the newly added kernel functions Rotate, Translate, Scale and GeometricTransformation. Sphere and Cylinder are available as the new built-in kernel functions Sphere and Cylinder. Torus and MoebiusStrip are available in the kernel function ExampleData. Igor
