Chapter 7. Drawing and Modifying Objects > Grouping and Ungrouping Objects

Grouping and Ungrouping Objects

Objects can be grouped together, ungrouped, and regrouped in FrontPage to make editing and moving information easier. Rather than moving several objects one at a time, you can group the objects and move them all together. Grouped objects appear as one object, but each object in the group maintains its individual attributes. You can change an individual object within a group without ungrouping. This is useful when you need to make only a small change to a group, such as changing the color of a single shape in the group. You can also format specific AutoShapes, drawings, or pictures within a group without ungrouping. Simply select the object within the group, change the object or edit text within the object, and then deselect the object. However, if you need to move an object in a group, you need to first ungroup the objects, make the change, and then group the objects together again. After you ungroup a set of objects, FrontPage remembers each object in the group and in one step regroups those objects when you use the Regroup command. Before you regroup a set of objects, make sure that at least one of the grouped objects is selected.
