How do I 'select' and 'grab' and move it
Hi,

Working on a book cover but it seems that once something is down and saved - like my title - I can't just go back and tweak it with resizing and moving. How does someone simply rearrange the layout?

Hopefully this isn't too generic a question...

Thanks!

Wow, that's frightening. Better look into this one pronto!

Thanks.
