Will be simple question for someone but i have drawn a rectangle in the corner of the sheet....how do i move this rectangle anywhere within the sheet....i tried to movede but it goes out of shape

Lou

Hi,

 

just a guess: you don't move the object, you take one grip and are in "STRETCH"-mode, so you stretch this one vertex of the rectangle away. Change (with right-mouse-menu or by pressing <SPACE>) to "MOVE"-mode and then move the grip-point to any new position.

 

If I'm wrong then make a screenshot when you have started the move and the rectangle is currently "going out of shape" so we can see the shape and we can see the command-line to know where you are.
