In Word alignment, grouping, ordering, and rotating objects is possible. When using Word align text and order objects in various ways.
In Word, a page may have multiple objects, such as pictures, shapes, and text boxes. You can arrange the objects the way you want by aligning, ordering, rotating, and grouping them in various ways.

When pictures are first inserted, you may notice that it's difficult to move them. This is because by default, pictures are in line with the text. To arrange them, you'll always need to choose a different text-wrapping setting. To review how to modify text wrapping, visit our lesson on Pictures and Text Wrapping.
By default, Align Selected Objects will be selected, which will allow objects to be aligned without moving them to a different part of the page. If you want the objects to move to the top or bottom of the page, select Align to Page or Align to Margin before choosing an alignment option.
If you prefer to align objects manually, select View Gridlines. This option snaps objects to a grid, making it easier for you to align them with the mouse.
If you have arranged objects in a row or column, you may want them to be an equal distance from one another for a neater appearance. You can do this by distributing the objects horizontally or vertically.
