I can't find a stretch function. What do you do when you want to move one edge of a polygon, or a path segment? I can't see a partial-select, so partial-select and move seems like it's not the way this gets done. It's a pretty basic layout function. Am I looking for the wrong name? It doesn't appear in the Draw menu, along with Move and Copy, where I'd expect it.
Help search for "stretch" turns up nothing.

A point or partial-select is located under mainmenu/select/fine-select/point-select.

Look under UTILITIES / ADJUST UTILITIES. "Move Edge" might be what you want.

Yes, this works like I want. Thanks!
Have to monkey with cursor position to get the -right- edge (seems to select anything within a range, but this changes with position). Seem
Being able to select -multiple- edges (like, say I want to drag the base, collector and iso all rightward while I stretch the emitter width, maintaining existing proper nesting) would be nice. Will have to see whether point-select works for multiple shapes' multiple vertices; Move Edge does not seem to want a shift-click add-select.

I have found that you can multi-select (shift-click) many points, to drag a plurality of edges and objects (if you fine_select>point every vertex, the object becomes fully selected and drags as a unit). A bit tedious in selection but effective in moving stuff that needs to stay together.
Also if you hold down the shift key, it seems to inhibit the pre-selection-highlighting of vertices until you release it.
