Use the Selection Tool to select, move and resize objects. Click on an object using the left mouse button to select it. Select multiple objects by holding down the Shift key while clicking on additional objects, or by dragging the mouse to surround the desired objects in a rectangle. Selected objects will be surrounded with small, box-like handles. For example:



Once selected, an object or group may be moved by clicking on the object with the left mouse button, then dragging the object or group to a new location before releasing the mouse button. To resize an object, simply click and drag one of the object’s selection handles. Selected objects also can be cut or copied to the Windows Clipboard, or removed from the workspace by pressing the Delete key.


Depending on the object selected, clicking it with the right mouse button will allow you to modify the object’s appearance and define how the object behaves. Most types of objects can also be assigned Actions to execute when clicked on by the reader.
