i often have a group wrapped around an item, like a button.
I can select the group in the outline view, but then there's no real way to move it in the design view: if I click on it to move it, I immediately select the button and lose the group.
If there was a way to at least get focus on the design window, perhaps I could use the arrow keys to nudge the selected group.
Is there a way to do this I am missing?
You should be able to nudge the group in design view using arrow keys.
If you are selecting in outline view, you might have to set the focus back in Design View( click on the editor tab)
Thanks, I was not aware how to return focus.
However, how do I set the current item's attributes across all states?
Currently that's a right-click operation, but the same problem arises; when
I click to right click I don't get the item I'm trying to set.
