1 Open the Interactive Tools flyout, and click the Interactive Envelope tool.

2 Select the object that has the envelope you want to edit.

3 Click the Unconstrained button on the Property Bar.

4 Marquee select the nodes you want to move.

5 Drag any of the selected nodes.

Each of the selected nodes move the same distance and direction as the node you drag.
