Hour 2. Drawing and Painting Original Ar... > Selecting and Transforming Objects

Selecting and Transforming Objects

Now that you've seen how to create lines, fills, shapes (with both lines and fills), and text, it's time to explore how to modify them. The process is simple. Select the object you want to modify using the Arrow tool and then modify it. Selecting exactly what you want to modify is actually the most challenging part. This section looks at some of the fundamentals, and you'll see even more in Hour 4.

Selection Tools

The two basic selection tools are the Arrow tool and the Lasso tool. The Subselect tool (the white arrow) is for selecting and editing individual anchor points (in the same way the Pen tool created them). If you're familiar with controlling shapes using the Pen tool, this will be familiar to you. Otherwise, you should master the basics before working with the Subselect tool. You're going to concentrate on just the Arrow tool and the Lasso tool first.
