Move Module: Click+Drag
To move a module, click on the module and drag. When the module is near an inline guide, the module's position and rotation will be determined by the inline. If you hold down Alt, you can force the module into the center of the stroke. If you hold down Ctrl, the module can be moved anywhere.
Freely Move Module: Select+Ctrl+Drag
To freely move a module or selection, click and drag while holding down Ctrl. This is often used in combination with Ctrl+X and Ctrl+C to position and rotate the module precisely. Using Ctrl will also auto rotate the module based on the path created by the mouse movements. To reset this path, release Ctrl and press Ctrl again.
Free Drag: Ctrl+Click+Drag
To create a new run in a free form manner, click and drag while holding down Ctrl. The path of the mouse will be used to create a smooth path for the modules. This is useful with cursive letters that intersect and there is no well defined stroke to use.
Drag to Copy: Ctrol+Drag Selection
To copy a selection to other location in the same letter, make a selection and then hold down Ctrl as you click and drag. Stop the drag where you want the new modules to be placed. If you want to copy modules to a different letter, you need to use a different approach - select all modules with Shift+A, click on the other letter and then press Shift+V.
Create Selection: Shift+Click
To create a selection, simply hold down Shift while clicking another module in the same run. As you move the mouse while holding down Shift, the modules in the perspective selection will be highlighted.
Force Center of Stroke: Alt+Drag
To drag a path in the center of the stroke, hold the Alt key while you drag the mouse. Or to manually position and add a module one at a time, hold the Alt key to find the center of the stroke, and then click the mouse to add a single module.
