Selecting Multiple Canvas Objects

The AtScale cube designer canvas allows users to view the layout of the objects within their cubes however they desire. This includes moving dimensions and datasets to different positions on the cube canvas.

  • To optimize this process, users can multi-select numerous canvas objects:
  1. Select and hold down the Shift key.
  2. Click on the cube canvas, and drag over the multiple canvas objects you would like to select.
  3. To move the selected items simultaneously, select the header bar of the dimension or dataset of any object selected.
  4. Drag the selected objects to their desired location.
  5. To release the multi-select, release the Shift key and click anywhere on canvas.
