Get help using Construct 2

Hello,

How can I select and move an object hidden by an other object in the viewport ?
I can select an instance by clicking in the object list but I can't move it ! It moves the front object !
I other softwares, we can usually use arrow keys but not here.

Help !

Hold tab and click a selected object to select the next object underneath in the Z order
What I know would fill a Book , what I don't know would fill a Library

Thanks for reply !

But I know it lol. I can select the object. But when I click and left the click pressed, if I move, it moves the front object instead of the one I just selected.

Select it from the library list. It'll select the object no matter where it is and then use arrows. This is probably one of a few different ways to do this, but this is what I do.

okok but as I said : I know how to select it but not how to move it. en I click and drag it doesn't move the object I selected. I moves the front object instead. Really anoying. I have to change objects layers.

But I always love Contruct 2, even in a virtual win7 machine, with some small pbs like this one :-)
