How Do I Edit & Change a Saved Inkscape SVG Document?

Asked by Pat Quigley on 2018-06-29

I saved a created text document as an Inkscape SVG file. Now when I open that document to move the elements around,
the arrow and handles cover the whole document so I can't manipulate individual elements and can't find command to enable
editing individual elements?

Please check what kind of object you have there:

Click on it with the selector tool, then look into the status bar.

Please report back your results.

I finally figured out how to click on the item to isolate one element in the document and then make a change.

It was pretty simple but I was just not using the right action with my mouse.

Thanks,
