In Plotagraph Desktop software multiple animation points can be moved by highlighting a group using the selection tool first (shortcut A). For more detailed selection options, choose the ‘Lassso Selection Tool’ (shortcut J). With the lasso selection tool simply draw around all the points you wish to select.

Once the desired points are selected, click on any single end point (arrow at the end of an animation point) and drag to the desired length and direction and all the points will follow in the same direction and distance. To move the beginnings of multiple points, hold the ‘M’ key, click then drag to the desired length and direction and all the beginnings of the selected points will follow in the same direction and distance.
Lastly, hold the SHIFT key when adjusting the points and they will snap to perfectly horizontal, vertical, and 45 degree intervals in between!
