Selection Tools and Commands

After objects are created on the artboard, the work is rarely finished. Perhaps appearance characteristics must be applied, or one or more objects need to be rearranged on the artboard. For whatever reason, changes must be made.

Before you can alter an object on the artboard, you have to identify it to Illustrator. This is the process of selection. When an object is selected on the artboard (or through the Layers palette), changes can be made to it. Unselected objects cannot be changed directly.
