select multiple objects

An object is any item you place on a page, including images (photos), text boxes, shapes, tables and charts. To select multiple objects, do one of the following:

  • Touch and hold one object on the screen, then tap the other objects with another finger. Use both hands if it’s easier.

  • Touch and hold an empty area of the screen, then drag the box that appears around the objects you want to select.

  • If your iPad has iPadOS installed and you’re using a Bluetooth keyboard, hold down Shift-Command, then select multiple objects.

Note: If you’re working with inline objects, you can only edit one object at a time.
