* Cycles Top-Middle-Bottom-None, then repeats starting at top
<br />** Make sure you let up on the mouse before letting up on Ctrl
<br />*** Meaning you can only drag in X or Y direction, not both, for each click-move-unclick
<br />**** You need to activate Rotation first (toolbar or keyboard R)
<p>You can <em>constrain</em> objects when re-sizing them with Ctrl+drag. <em>Constraining</em> keeps the aspect ratio the same as the original shape.</p>

Formerly, if you also held Ctrl, amount of enlarging/shrinking was larger, but currently this only moves the frame.
<h3>Resizing and Moving Images in Edit Contents Mode</h3>
<li>Holding down Alt</li>
<li>Right-arrow or Down-arrow enlarge image (Scaling goes up, X-Pos and Y-Pos are unchanged)</li>
<li>Left-arrow or Up-arrow shrink image</li>
<li>Holding down no modifier, or Shift, or Ctrl, or Shift+Ctrl<br />(Image moves, not frame)</li>
<li>Right-arrow moves image to right (increases X-Pos)</li>
<li>Left-arrow moves image to left (decreases X-Pos)</li>
<li>Up-arrow moves image up (decreases Y-Pos)</li>
<li>Down-arrow moves image down (increases Y-Pos)</li>
<li>The relative amounts of movement:
<br />Shift > Ctrl = no key > Shift+Ctrl</li>
<br />The amounts are numerically independent of units, and therefore are greatest with a unit of inches

<tr><td>Points:</td> <td> Shift &ndash; 1.27 pts</td> <td>Ctrl &ndash; 0.12(7) pts</td> <td>Shift+Ctrl &ndash; 0.01(27) pts</td></tr>
