Click on the move icon if you want to move an object. This can be a single element or if multiple elements are selected, all of them will be moved.
In the normal move mode, elements are moved in total. When you only want to move a single entity of an element, keep the ALT key in when moving. This applies when moving a single node of an area, block or polyline. It is also used when moving the start or end angle of a pivot.
While moving elements you may also press the page up or page down key to rotate the selected entities.
The finger can increase or decrease the size of pivot or lateral spans. It can also change the size of an area or block.
