Q&A

Q1:I've aligned several drawing objects along their top edges, and now I want to shift one to the right. How can I drag it without accidentally moving it out of vertical alignment with the other images?
A1: If you hold down the Shift key as you drag an image, Word lets you move it only vertically or horizontally, but not both. This lets you maintain an image's alignment with other images as you drag.
Q2:I want to have finer control over resizing, moving, cropping, and images. Is this possible?
A2: Yes. When you drag to resize, move, or crop an image, Word uses invisible gridlines to respond to your mouse movements. By default, the gridlines are 0.13 inch apart. If you reduce this amount to, say, 0.02 to 0.05 inch, you will have much finer control. To do this, click the Draw button in the Drawing toolbar, and click Grid to display the Drawing Grid dialog box. Under Grid Settings, decrease the values in the Horizontal Spacing and Vertical Spacing text boxes, and then click OK. (You can also hold down the Ctrl key as you drag to crop all four sides of a picture equally.)
Q3:I rotated a drawing object and now I want to get it back to its original orientation. How do I do this?
A3: Double-click the object to display the Format dialog box. Then click the Size tab, change the setting in the Rotation text box back to 0, and click OK.
Q4:I resized and cropped an image, and now I want to get it back to its original state. What do I do?
A4: Double-click the image to display the Format dialog box. To reset the size, click the Size tab, and then click the Reset button. To reset cropping and any changes you made to the image's brightness and contrast, click the Picture tab and click the Reset button. Then click OK.
