Selecting objects

Before you can move or shape an object, you must select it. When you select an object, a selection box appears around the object. A selection box appears as an invisible rectangle having eight black squares, called selection handles, arranged at the corners and midpoints, and a small "x" in the center.

When you select an object, eight selection handles appear around the object. The center of the selection box is marked by a small "x".

If necessary, you can perform actions on more than one object by selecting all the objects you want. When you select multiple objects, a single selection box encloses all the objects and the "x" appears in the center of the selection box. You can select objects using the mouse, keyboard, or menu commands.

You can select objects on any unlocked layer as long as the Edit Across Layers option is enabled in the Object Manager. If this option is disabled, then you can only select objects on the active layer. For more information about layers, see "Using layers to organize your drawing" on page 193.

If you select a locked object, the selection handles appear as padlocks. You cannot edit a locked object. To make changes, you must first unlock the object. For more information, see "Locking and unlocking objects" on page 185.
