In Word alignment, grouping, ordering, and rotating objects is possible. When using Word align text and order objects in various ways.
At times, you may want to group multiple objects into one object so they will stay together if they are moved or resized. Often, this is easier than selecting all of the objects every time you want to move them. Shapes, clip art, and text boxes can be grouped together.
To group objects:
- Hold the Shift (or Ctrl) key and click the objects you want to group.
Selecting multiple objects
- From the Format tab, click the Group command and select Group.
- The selected objects will now be grouped. There will be a single box with sizing handles around the entire group to show that they are one object. You can now move or resize all of the objects at once.
The grouped objects
If you want to edit or move one of the objects in the group, double-click to select the object. You can then edit it or move it to the desired location.
Moving an object within a group
To ungroup objects:
- Select the grouped object you want to ungroup.
- From the Format tab, click the Group command and select Ungroup.
- The objects will be ungrouped.
