Objects are added to a report using the Report Controls toolbar. Click the appropriate button in the toolbar, then click and drag in the report window to specify where the object goes and its size. In the case of a field or picture, the Properties dialog appears since you must specify the expression for the field or source for the picture.
To do something with an object, you must first select it. Ensure the Select Objects item in the Report Control toolbar is selected, then click the desired object. To select more than one object, hold down the Shift key while you select objects. You can also select multiple objects by clicking outside one of the desired objects and dragging a "marquee" rectangle around the desired objects; any object even partially inside the marquee is selected. To select all the objects in a band, hold down the Shift key and double-click the grey bar for the band. To unselect a selected object, hold down the Shift key and click it.
Once an object is selected, you can do many things to it:
Different objects have different types of properties. To see the Properties dialog for an object, double-click it. The properties in these dialogs are described in the topic for each object.
