Chapter 11. Working with Objects in Layo... > To move an object within the same la...

To move an object within the same layout:

1.
Switch to Layout mode ( in Windows, on the Mac), then select the object by clicking on it with your cursor. Keep pressing your cursor and drag the object to its new location in the layout. A set of dotted lines marks the object’s position as you drag it (Figure 11.2).

Figure 11.2. To move an object within a layout, click on it and drag it. A dotted outline of the object appears as you move the object.


If you want to ensure that the object only moves horizontally (or vertically), hold down as you drag it.

2.
Once you put the object where you want it, release the cursor (Figure 11.3). The object will now appear in the new location within the layout.

Figure 11.3. Once you’ve dragged an object to where you want it, release the cursor.


Tip

  • While the field moved in the above example, the “Notes” field label did not. That’s because the label is a separate object. While you can move more than one object at a time by -clicking on several objects before dragging them, grouping such objects often makes more sense because things like field labels automatically tag along when you move a field. See To group objects on page 173.
