Changing bounds of selection

The selected area can be increased or reduced using different methods.

Handles

The easiest way to start changing the bounds of the selection area is to right click and hold its left or right edge. Thus, the vertical handles appear. Without releasing the mouse button, drag the currently active handle to the required direction to increase or reduce the selected fragment.

Dragging the selection’s left or right edge always switches to the Fragments mode.
