Moving Objects

Moving an object or group of objects is very easy. The simplest way is to drag the edge of an object in Outline or Preview view. If you want to constrain the movement of the object in multiples of 45 degrees, then use the Shift key as you drag. While you drag an object, Smart Guides appear automatically to make it easier for you to align objects with other objects.

    • To constrain the movement of the object to multiples of 45 degrees or the current angle in General preferences, hold down the Shift key as you drag.
    • If the path has a color fill, appears in Preview mode, and the Object Selection by Path Only check box is deselected in Selection & Anchor Display preferences, you can also click the fill to select the object.
