Grouping Objects

If you need to move a few objects on your slide after carefully positioning them, it can be hard to keep them positioned correctly. Fortunately, you can group two or more objects so that PowerPoint treats them as one object. For example, if you combine WordArt with a clip art image to create a logo, you can 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 relative positions. 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 14.31.
