move tool with select

I find sometimes when using the standard transform tool (never with the animate one) that if i have a single line it is really hard to get it to change to the move option.

Is there a way to force it into move?

does anyone else find this?

Well the reason is that you have to mouse over the line to get the crosshairs for the move tool to show up.

Let me tell you a little trick though. What you can do is you can create a transparent colour in your colour palette and use your draw behind brush to knock in some of this colour underneath your line. Now the area of influence that you’ll be able to grab will include the transparent colour.

I hope that helps!

Also sometimes if I have trouble moving things with the mouse I use the arrow keys (or more often Shift+Arrow keys) to move things around in increments.
