Select and Move an Object
A selected object
Select any object in your layout by clicking it. A bounding box will surround the object. Notice the cursor changes when hovering over a selected object. To move the object, click and drag it to anywhere on the stage. Once an object is selected, any colors or effects applied will only affect the selected object.
