Once objects are on the canvas it can be moved by selecting it and holding the left mouse button to drag it to the desired location. Multiple objects can be moved at the same time.
The location of objects can be also adjusted with various Align and Distribute tools in the Canvas context menu. To use these tools:
- Select the objects whose locations need to be adjusted. More than one object should be selected.
- Select the desired Align or Distribute tools from context menu.
