The Selection tool

If you want to move something in your level, you can use the selection tool. Click on the selection tool from the toolbar (the selection tool looks like a mouse cursor), then click on something in your level. Your selection should now have a border around it. Click and drag what you’ve selected, and move it to a different position.

Drag to fill

Using this menu you can add or edit the script for this object, remove its script, edit its instance properties, edit its animation, or delete it.
