Selecting Multiple Objects
Before you can move, modify, or perform other operations on objects, you must select
them. A selected object has handles that let you move or manipulate the object.
Here are ways to select and deselect objects:
To select a single object, click anywhere on the object (to select an object that has no
fill, click the edge).
To select several objects on a slide, hold down the Shift key as you click objects.
To select all the objects on a slide, click the slide and press Command-A.
To select an object that’s part of a group, you must first ungroup the objects. Select
the group, and then choose Arrange > Ungroup.
To deselect objects in a group of selected objects, hold down the Command key and
then click objects you want to deselect.
