Before you can move, modify, or perform other operations on objects, you must select
them. A selected object has handles that let you move or manipulate the object.
Here are ways to select and deselect objects:
To select a table, click its name in the Sheets pane. For other table selection
techniques, see “Selecting Tables and Their Components” on page 55.
To select other single objects, click anywhere in the object (to select an object that has
no fill, click the edge).
To select several objects on a sheet, hold down the Shift key as you click objects.
To select all the objects on a sheet, click the sheet and press Command-A.
To select an object that’s part of a group, you must first ungroup the objects. Select
the group, and then choose Arrange > Ungroup.
To deselect objects in a group of selected objects, hold down the Command key and
then click objects you want to deselect.
