You can also use the tool Select in the Drawing toolbar (View ▸ Toolbars ▸ Drawing) (first tool on the left of this toolbar) to surround the object to select:

  • click and keep the mouse button pressed;
  • move the mouse to surround the object (the selection is displayed by a dashed line around); and
  • release the mouse button: the object is selected.

The Navigator (Sidebar or View ▸ Navigator menu or F5) also allows you to select most of the objects.
