Grips are small squares that are displayed at strategic points on objects that you have selected with a pointing device. You can drag these grips to edit objects directly and quickly.
You can drag grips to perform any stretch, move, rotate, scale, or mirror operations. The editing operation you choose to perform is called a grip mode.
You can create multiple copies of objects as you modify them with any of the grip modes.
You can specify whether a block displays a single grip or multiple grips.
