Chapter 6. Select/Copy

Chapter 6. Select/Copy

In Chapter 5 you learned basic methods for creating objects. In later chapters you will learn how to reshape, recolor, transform, and distort objects. Objects can't be modified unless they're selected, though, so the first thing you'll learn in this chapter is how to select and deselect objects. You'll also learn how to move objects; use smart guides to align objects; hide/show an object's anchor points and direction lines; hide/show whole objects; lock/unlock objects; copy objects within the same file or between files; and offset a copy of a path.

If you like to move or position objects by entering values or measuring distances, after you learn the fundamental techniques in this chapter, read Chapter 23, Precision Tools.
