Selection on Single or Multiple Layers

By default, when you draw a selection box in the Camera view, the Select tool will select all the drawing strokes and symbols in its path. If you would prefer the Select tool to only select the current drawing and not the other visible drawings, you can enable the Select Tool Works on Single Drawing preference.

To enable the Select Tool Works on Single Drawing preference:

1. In the top menu, select Edit > Preferences (Windows/Linux) or Stage > Preferences (Mac OS X).

The Preferences dialog box opens.

2. In the Camera tab, go to the Tools section and select the Select Tool Works on Single Drawing preference and click OK.
3. In the Tools toolbar, select the Select tool or select [Alt] + [S].
4. In the Camera view, select your drawing.
