Chapter 7. Using Adobe Illustrator CS2 > Working with Selections

Working with Selections

Back in the Photoshop chapter, we spoke about the importance of making selections, and Illustrator is no different. In Photoshop, you were selecting pixels; here in Illustrator, you select objects. There are several selection tools and selection methods in Illustrator, so let's take a look at them.

The Selection tool (or the black arrow, as I like to call it, because of its appearance) is used to select entire objects. You select an object simply by clicking on it (see the sidebar “Selecting Objects”). When an object is selected, you can move it by dragging the object (see Figure 7.58).
