Using the Mouse
You can move any object simply by clicking on it with the mouse, and then moving the mouse, while keeping the mouse button pressed down. An outline of the object will follow your mouse as you move it.
If you hold the Shift key down while you use the mouse to move an object, it moves only horizontally or vertically (not diagonally).
Moving a Group of Objects
If more than one object is selected, clicking on one of them moves all of the selected objects as a group.
Selecting Multiple Objects
The easiest way to select more than one object is to first choose the Multiple Selection tool under the Select drop down on the Home tab. With this tool selected, clicking on an object does not de-select others. You can select more than one object by simply clicking on them one at a time. Clicking in the background of the drawing cancels the selection of the Multiple Selection tool.
You can also select more than one object by dragging the mouse around them to draw a selection box that includes every shape you want to select.
Dragging the mouse this way across the drawing window draws a temporary dotted rectangle. Any objects completely enclosed by this rectangle are selected once the mouse button is released.
To select all the objects in a drawing use the Select All (or Select All Lines or Select All Shapes) command under the Select menu on the Home tab.
Using the Arrow Keys
You can use the arrow keys to move a selected object very precisely. Clicking on an arrow key moves the object by one screen pixel (1/100 of an inch at normal viewing magnification) with each keystroke. The right and down arrows move the object to the right and bottom. The left and up arrows move it to the left and up. If more than one object is selected, all are moved.
The Align command under the Design tab can be used to align all selected objects with the selected target object. Learn more.
Spacing Objects Evenly
The Space Evenly command under the Design tab can be used to arrange all selected objects so that equal distances separate them. Learn more.
Centering the Drawing on the Page
The Center in Work Area command under the Page tab can be used to move all the objects in the drawing so that they are centered in the minimum number of pages needed to print them.
