Group and Ungroup

Sometimes you want to combine several objects. A good example is clip art and a block arrow with text. When you move the clip art, you want the text to move along with it. Here's what you do:

1.
Insert clip art.

2.
Create your block arrow.

3.
Deselect the block arrow, make sure that the pointer is active, and trace a box with your cursor around both objects to select them, as shown in Figure 15.15.

Figure 15.15. Instead of using Shift+click, you can trace a box with your cursor around multiple objects to select them. (Make sure that the pointer is active.)


4.
Click the Draw button on the Drawing toolbar and select Group, as shown in Figure 15.16.

Figure 15.16. Use the Group command to make a set of objects into one unit that you can move, resize, or modify together.
