Hi, years ago you could:
I haven't been able to figure out how to do that. In the screen shot, you can see an example. I'd like to nudge down all of the highlighted rule lines—but first I want to deselect the text box on top of them.
Does anyone know how I could do that?
Shift click to add to a selection, and Shift click to remove an object from a selection.
It can sometimes be a lot easier to select things in the Layers panel.
Shift+click on what you want to select in the Layers panel (you click on the little box to the right), and Ctrl+Shift+Click if you want to deselect something.
- Then hold down command to deselect a text box
That's where it's going wrong...just stay with Shift, per Barb's reply. I don't know if it ever worked that way with Command, but I do know it always did with Shift.
