How do I select multiple pieces of text or objects?
There are two ways to select multiple objects (text, shapes, images, etc.) - you can hold down the Shift button and click on each object that you'd like to select. Or you can hold down the mouse button and drag it over the objects you'd like to select.
This is known as a Marquee Selection. You don't have to completely surround each object you'd like to select, so long as the Marquee Selection Box touches or encompasses the object it will be selected.
