Select Elements

Select an element on a page

To select an element at the highest or current nesting level, just click it. If you need to select a nested element one level down from the current one, there are two ways:

  • Use double-click to go down one level of nesting
  • Click on an element while holding Ctrl or โŒ˜(Cmd) for MacOS. In this case, the hierarchy of elements isn't taken into account.

To reset the selection, press Esc.

To deselect, click the element again with the keys held.
