How to edit a box so that it's not selected when clicking inside it?

(I can still select it by clicking its edge.)


If the shape is transparent to clicks you can right-click the perimeter and select "edit", or press either F2 or Enter while the shape is selected to start editing.

  • Please clarify the question, it isn't clear in its current form. – Thomas the Tank Engine Apr 1 '18 at 15:42
  • I want to be able to click inside a shape, without selecting it. For example, if I use a rectangle ("Line" selected, "Fill" deselected" ) to enclose other shapes, I want to be able to click inside the perimeter of that rectangle, and the rectangle itself is not selected. You say "If the shape is transparent to clicks"... I want the shape to be transparent to clicks: how do I do that? Unselecting "fill: does not do that. – Davide Andrea Apr 3 '18 at 17:07
