  1. Right side of work area is unuseable

    If I create a file from a blank page and draw a rectangular shape on the white work area in the middle of the screen I get a rectangle with about an inch margin on the top, left and right. If I attempt to use the handles I cannot select the handles on the right side of the rectangle. This is much easier to see if I take the pencil and move it around the screen. It goes beyond my rectangle on the top, left and bottom, but stops working about 2 inches from the right side of the work area--far before I get to the right side of my rectangle. Why is this? Looks like content may exist there, but the selection and editing tools cannot operate there. Explain please. I am using the trial version 6.4.1.xxxx
  2. how to remove your water mark "Pdfelemement"

    I just downloaded the current trial version 6.4.1 and created a new file from a blank template and saved it. Got the screen that said it would have a watermark for the trial version. Loaded it again and attempted to remove watermark and the message said if it wasn't created by Adobe or PDFelement it could not remove it. It was created by PDFelement. How do I get rid of it? Is this a long time bug that you aren't going to fix? I see messages about this going back a long time.
  3. I would like to know how to select shapes I've created to move or edit their properties. I mostly used the shapes tools to add the following to a blank page: I started with a blank letter sized page. I added a rectangle (rectangle1) approximately the top half of the page with some margin space. Inside that I put two small rectangles (rectangle2 and rectangle3) about 1/2"H x 2"W and 4" apart horizontally. Inside each of those I placed a text box with a word in it. I drew two arrows horizontally from rectangle2 to rectangle3. Now I would like to move them around to line them up better or change their sizes or colors, but I do not know how to select them. Going to shapes and selecting the arrow, I can click on the last arrow I added and select it. Either using the command key or without using it. I can edit that and that is what I want to do with all the other shapes. Is that possible? If I make any other attempts to select anything, the first rectangle is selected. O WOW. I just discovered something I hadn't discovered before. I was attempting to see if when that outside rectangle was selected and moved whether all the rectangles inside it also moved with it and they did not. If I drag rectangle1 away from the other images, I can select them whereas I could not do this before. So in that case are these things somehow in layers and I have to move one to the back to access and select the others. I so, how do I know which one is in front and has to be moved other than maybe it is just the next thing selected. Please explain how this works. What I have read so far about the PENCIL and ERASER is confusing and I think I should simply be able to select a shape and edit it with the shapes tool. Thank You. DISH Wiring in basement.pdf
