Moving Objects

In QuarkXPress when you want to move a box or line, you use the Item tool, the Measurement palette, the Modify dialog box, or the Arrow keys on the keyboard. InDesign’s methods are similar.

By Dragging

When you want to move a path or frame interactively, choose the object with the Selection tool and just drag it. (Holding down the Command/Ctrl key gives you temporary access to the Selection tool if another tool is selected.) For an object that has a fill, you can drag from anywhere inside the shape. However, unlike QuarkXPress, if it has a stroke and no fill, you must click it on its outline to move it. If the outline is difficult to select, you can also drag the object by its nonprinting center point.
