How do I select an Object that is not visible on the page?

Sometimes an object will be beyond the edges of a page and sometimes it will just be too small to see or be behind another object. There are a couple of ways to find it.

- Try Zooming the work window out so you can see more of the page. To do that, press menu item: 'Page' > 'Zoom In/Out' (or the Zoom button) to turn Zoom on. Then press the right mouse button to zoom out (press the left mouse button to zoom in). When you are done press item: 'Page' > 'Normal View' to return to non-zoomed mode.

- Try looking at the 'Quick Properties Editor' in the 'Object' tab. Click on the object name and use the keyboard arrow keys to scroll through the objects (or click on the work space window and press TAB or SHIFT+TAB to move to the next or previous object). Watch the 'Position' X and Y numbers for very large numbers or negative numbers. They will be off the screen.

Once you find the object, while it is selected, you can either change the position numbers so it is visible or press the menu item 'Edit' > 'Delete' to remove it. You can also 'Edit'>'Cut' the object and right-click 'Paste' it to a new location.
