Chapter 9. Transforming > Moving Objects

Moving Objects

There are many ways to move objects in InDesign—select the object and then try any of the methods shown here. (To move the content of a frame without moving the frame itself, select the Direct Selection tool and click inside the frame.)

Moving Objects by Dragging

To move an object, select the object with the Selection tool or the Direct Selection tool and drag—make sure not to drag the Content Grabber or you’ll move only the frame contents. Hold down Option/Alt as you drag to duplicate the object.

The Live Screen Drawing option in Interface preferences determines what happens when you move an object. If Immediate is selected, the object moves when you drag. If Delayed is selected when you start dragging, you’ll see only a box representing an object; however, holding down the mouse button for a moment before dragging causes the object to move as you drag it.
