3.2 Selecting Drawing Objects

There are two selection modes in the Layout view:

  • Normal: Grouped objects respect the layering of a group of objects. A group has to be ungrouped in order for a single object within the group to be selected and altered.

  • Flattened: The layers created by object groupings are “flattened” and single objects in the group can easily be selected and altered without ungrouping all.

To select objects:

  1. To select complex items (grouped items) as a single item, click Properties Pane (Normal).

  2. To select and move a single item that is part of a group, click Properties Pane (Flattened).
