No matter how comfortable you get with InDesign’s drawing tools (see Chapter 5, “Drawing Lines and Shapes”), you’ll want to modify nearly every object you create by applying a fill or a stroke, by scaling, rotating, or flipping horizontally or vertically, by moving or resizing, and so on. One of the most enjoyable benefits of using InDesign is that it allows you to change your mind as often as you want and modify objects in many ways. But before you can modify an object, you must first select it.
In this chapter you’ll learn how to use two tools to select objects. The chapter also explains how you can use many of InDesign’s most powerful features to modify objects and create eye-catching graphic elements.
