Enter values manually to move to a new location, or click and drag your mouse up and down over the arrows to increase/decrease the values.

Use Height for Brush

Click the Down Arrow next the Z field to open the Contextual Menu. Click on Use Height for Brush to copy the current Focus Z Height value into the Height field of the Tool Options Palette. This allows you to then switch to the Brush Tool and paint to match your compass height with the value already entered.
