Moving Objects

 

 

Moving Objects

Virtually all objects that are not tied down to a particular geographic location can be moved using the mouse.  This includes CAD and bitmap images, well labels, time history graphs, plot legends, profile maps (on cross-section views), data tables, pie charts, scales, north arrows, circles, rectangles and radial diagrams. To move an object locate the cursor over the object to be moved and press the left mouse button. Wait till the mouse cursor changes to a crossed-arrow and then move the mouse while holding down the mouse button. Release the button to stop moving the object.  If you want to move more than one object at a time, select the objects, select the option move from the modify menu, and move the objects with the mouse to their new locations altogether.

In some cases, it may be desirable for objects to not be moveable.  For instance, drawn entities or images that are tied down to specific coordinates likely should not be moved.  Many objects, such as the drawn entities and bitmap images contain a check box in their dialog box to determine whether or not the object is movable using a mouse.
