Chapter 3. Adding Art to Office Document... > Selecting, Moving, and Resizing Obje...

Selecting, Moving, and Resizing Objects

As you learn more about and use each Office program, you'll want to enhance your documents with more than just text or formulas. To do so, you can insert an object. An object is a picture or graphic image you create with a drawing program or insert from an existing file of another program. For example, you can insert the logo of your practice, or you can insert clip art—copyright-free pictures that come with Office. The word object can take on a new meaning with each program. For example, when you create an Access database, all tables, queries, forms, and reports are considered objects. To work with an object, you need to select it first. Then you can resize or move it with its selection handles, the little circles that appear on the edges of the selected object.

Select and Deselect an Object

  • Click an object to display its handles.

    To select more than one object at a time, hold down Shift as you click each object.

  • Click elsewhere within the document window to deselect a selected object.
