Cursors

In the canvas, the effect of clicking and dragging depends on the current mouse cursor:
  • Select cursor - select objects by clicking on them, select multiple objects by dragging. Once selected, move or resize objects by dragging.
  • Scale cursor - when resizing objects, scale rather than resize. Scaling increases text sizes, border radii etc.
  • Hand cursor - when dragging, pan the viewport
