Adobe InDesign – Selecting Objects 




» 01 – Selecting through a stack


Selecting objects which are behind other objects – selecting through a stack – is an essential selection technique. Anyone who has been on a formal InDesign intro course should already know this, but there are a surprising number of InDesign users who don’t know the technique.

» 02 – Select through a stack and move


In the previous tutorial sequence you saw how you can select through a stack to objects that are obscured by other objects sitting on top of them. This tutorial sequence shows you a useful variation – how you can select through a stack and then reposition the object, without necessarily changing the stacking order itself.

» 03 – Select next object above / below


In simple, straight forward layouts with columns of text, headlines and a few images, you probably don’t need the use the commands in this tutorial sequence, but when stacking order gets complex the Select sub-menu can come to the rescue. They become particularly useful if you start to build complex graphics, like the compass you saw in the previous sequences on selecting objects.
