    1111This mode is to change the selection of [wikitr:/Help/Concepts/Object objects] on the map.

    13 The selected objects are drawn in a different style (red color by default); depending on [wikitr:/Help/Preferences/Display preferences] and the [wikitr:/Help/Dialog/MapPaint active styles]. They are listed in the [wikitr:/Help/Dialog/SelectionList Selection window].

    86 * {{{Alt}}} can't be combined with {{{Ctrl}}} - as this is used for the **[#Scale scale]** command

    155166== Advanced details ==#Advanceddetails
    156167Whether a mouse action is considered a selection or a move depends on some settings, to prevent objects from being moved when a simple selection was intended; this is particularly important on devices such as tablets that are touch sensitive or use a stylus. If the pointer is moved between pressing and releasing the left mouse button, the object will only be moved if the pointer moved more than 5 pixels or was held down for more than 0.2 seconds, otherwise the object will simply be selected. These two settings can be changed with the [wikitr:/Help/Preferences/Advanced advanced preferences] {{{edit.initial-move-threshold}}} (pixels) and {{{edit.initial-move-delay}}} (milliseconds).
