Editing a chart
Selecting chart elements allows you move, reformat, align, copy and perform other operations, on those elements only. There are 2 ways to select chart elements. First, make sure that you have the Pointer tool selected.
Method 1 - place the cursor over your chosen element, the cursor will change to , and click the left mouse button. You will see small, square "handles" appear which indicate that the element is now selected. These handles can also be used to resize the element. You can now select (and deselect) additional elements by holding down the Shift key while clicking the left mouse button. When the cursor is over a selected element it looks like . If you have more than one element selected, the handles around the elements appear grey and you cannot use these for resizing.
Method 2 - Drag a marquee around the element(s) you wish to select. Do this by positioning the cursor where it is not over any element, press and hold the left mouse button and drag the mouse so that the expanding rectangular outline is over at least part of all your chosen elements. Release the mouse button. You can also use this method with the Shift key to add or remove elements from the selection.
If you select an element which has a line joined to it, the joined line will not be selected but will be shown with round handles (instead of square ones) to indicate that it will be affected by movement of the selected element.
The status bar at the bottom of the TreeDraw window shows the number of elements currently selected.
