Grouping Objects

You can group two or more PowerPoint objects in order to treat them as one object. For example, if you combine WordArt with a clip art image to create a logo, you might want to group these objects so that they stay together when you move them. A grouped set of objects moves in unison, always remaining in the same position in relation to each other as when you grouped them. When you format grouped objects, the formatting applies to all the objects. For example, let's say you have two grouped objects that were originally different colors. If you now recolor them, the new color applies to both objects, not just one. To make individual changes, you have to ungroup the objects.

To group selected objects, click the Draw button on the Drawing toolbar and choose Group. The object handles now treat the objects as one, shown in Figure 12.30.
