Hi
How do I click and drag an edge of a mask without dragging the rest of the mask with it? I just want to expand that edge of the mask by clicking and dragging that edge? Thanks

And if you don't want to read all of that, twirl open your mask and click on path, then use selection tool(the arrow) draw a rectangle around the areas you want to select. Then move them.
