      Tab Control Panel - need help selecting multiple fields

      Post

      In FMP11, I have created a tab control in my layout.   

      I've been trying to select multiple fields at once by surrounding the fields with a selection box using the mouse (point, click and drag).  But everytime I start to select the fields the entire tab control moves instead. 

      How can I select the fields inside a tab in the layout mode, not the tab control itself?

          Select the tab control while in layout mode and lock it. This option may be found in the Arrange and Align section of the Inspector's Position tab.

          You can also select multiple objects by holding down the shift key and clicking each item in turn to select a group.

          Another trick is to click and hold down the mouse button outside the edge of the tab control, then draw a selection rectangle around the objects without stretching the selection box quite far enough to also select the tab control.
