#32 Selecting and Editing Anchors
You select an anchor point when you want to reshape an object. For example, you can turn a circle into an oval by selecting an anchor point and dragging it (Figure 32a).

To select an anchor point, move the Direct Selection tool over a path. As you do, the anchors will become visible (Figure 32b).

To select a single anchor, click on it. To select multiple anchors, you can:
- Draw a marquee with the Direct Selection tool.
- Use Shift+click to select multiple anchors.
- Draw a marquee with the Lasso tool around the anchors (hold down the Shift key to draw additional Lasso tool marquees).
