Hi,

 

I'm not able to move layers or objects with the direct selection tool selected. I cannot align multiple layers or move layers unless I "command + T" to select the entire item and then move. 

 

Please help!

Hi Judith, The Direct Selection tool (white arrow, keyboard: A) is used to move and adjust anchor points on a path. The Path Selection tool (black arrow, keyboard: A) is used to move entire paths or vector objects. If you're trying to move layers or selections, you want the Move tool (keyboard: V) which looks like a "plus" sign with arrows.
