Selecting objects using the Object Manager

Just as you do in the Drawing Window, you must select objects in the Object Manager before you can manipulate, format, or edit them. You can select any object or group of objects using the mouse.

To select one object or group of objects

• Click the object or group name tag.

To select multiple objects or groups of objects on a single layer

• Hold down CTRL, and click each of the name tags of the objects or groups of objects you want to select. Hold down SHIFT to select a series of objects.

To select multiple objects or groups of objects on multiple layers

• Ensure that the Edit Across Layers button is enabled, then hold down CTRL and select objects on the same layer or different layers.

• You can only select objects on different layers when the objects are on the same page (or on the Master Page and any other page). You cannot, for example, select multiple objects on different layers of pages 1 and 3 of a document.
