Moving an Object
To move an object or objects, first select the objects you want to move and then do one of the following:
- Depress the primary mouse button somewhere
inside the selection, and drag the mouse. Release the
mouse button when the objects have reached their required
location. If you only want to move the object by a very small
amount, and your mouse is very sensitive or you have difficulties
with fine motor co-ordination, depress the mouse button and instead
of dragging use the arrow keys to move the pointer.
- Use Edit->Move By to show the Move By dialog box (Figure 8.2). In the field marked x enter the horizontal displacement, and in the field marked y enter the vertical displacement. For example, to move the selected objects 10 units to the right and 20 units down, type 10 in the x field and 20 in the y field. To move left or up, use a negative value.
