Contains commands for modifying objects in your document.

Rotate

Rotates the selected object(s).

Flip

Flips the selected object horizontally, or vertically.

Convert

Options for converting the selected object.

Arrange

Changes the stacking order of a selected object.

Alignment (Objects)

Aligns selected objects with respect to one another.

Distribution

Distributes three or more selected objects evenly along the horizontal axis or the vertical axis. You can also evenly distribute the spacing between objects.

Name Object

Assigns a name to the selected object, so that you can quickly find the object in the Navigator.

Group

Groups the selected objects, so that they can be moved as a single object.

Ungroup

Breaks apart the selected group into individual objects.

Enter Group

Opens the selected group, so that you can edit the individual objects. If the selected group contains nested group, you can repeat this command on the subgroups.

Exit Group

Exits the group, so that you can no longer edit the individual objects in the group.

Combine

Combines two or more selected objects into a single shape. Unlike grouping, a combined object takes on the properties of the lowermost object in the stacking order. You can split apart combined objects, but the original object properties are lost.

Split

Splits a combined object into individual objects. The resulting objects have the same line and fill properties as the combined object.

Shapes

Creates a shape from two or more selected objects.

Connect

Creates a line or Bézier curve by connecting two or more lines, Bézier curves, or other objects with a line. Closed objects containing a fill are converted to lines and lose their fill.

Break

Breaks apart lines joined with the Connect command.
