Selecting Existing Shapes

The Dynamic Shapes tool can be used to select existing Dynamic Shapes in two ways. The first way is to simply click on the shape’s transformation point, path, or, for filled shapes, any part of the path’s filled area; holding down Shift will add the shape to the selection. The second way is to use the tool to drag-marquee. To do this, hold down Shift+Option/Alt and, starting at an empty area of the canvas, drag to marquee select art. Holding down Shift alone will add any marqueed art to the selection; holding down Option/Alt alone will remove any marqueed art.
