    I miss being able to use the Marquee Select tool in the layout. Any chance this could be added in future versions?

    The Select tool in the layout lets you also use it as a Marquee Select.

    Hold down the left mouse button, and move the mouse and you can see the marquee being drawn in the layout.

    Thanks Peter. That doesn't work unless you start from an area that does not have an object such as a box. I always have several text boxes and legends and images with a border box beneath them. When I use your method it simply grabs the underlying box and moves it.

    That's a fair point, Bryce.
    I had forgotten about that issue.

    I'd suggest that you create an idea on the Precisely Ideas site that you can access from the Precisely Sites dropdown at the top of this page.

    Thanks
