Editing Detail Shapes

Object Level Editing is active by default. Object Level Editing, along with Point Level Editing, controls how your edits impact your object. When Object-Level is enabled, the entire object is selected; this is ideal for resizing an entire object. When Point Level is enabled, each control point on the object is selected; this is ideal for precision editing such as reshaping.
