Changing the selection mode

To go from one mode to another, you can do one of the following:

  • Toggle the Points button Image:DrawPointsActive.png on the Drawing toolbar to switch from the simple selection mode to the Points mode. You can also use the keyboard shortcut F8 (Points).
  • Choose the Effects drop-down button from the Drawing toolbar Image:DrawEffectsIcon.png to activate the Rotation mode for a selected object.
  • If you often work in Rotation mode, you can choose the Rotation Mode after Clicking Object button Image:RotationModeIcon.png from the Options bar, you can cycle through normal and rotation modes just by clicking on the object. This can be more convenient than clicking the object, then clicking the Rotate button from the Drawing Toolbar.
