Chapter 2. Working in Programs > Selecting and Formatting Objects

Selecting and Formatting Objects

Passages of text, drawings, charts, scanned images, and other items you can select are called objects. You can format objects and drag objects to reposition them on the page within an application, and you can usually drag them to other applications too.

  • In Word: Select text to create an object that you can drag or format (Figure 2.12).

    Figure 2.12. In Word, select text to create an object.


  • In Excel: Drag diagonally from one corner of a range of cells to the opposite corner to create a selected range (Figure 2.13). The selected range, now enclosed in a box, is an object that you can drag or format.

  • In PowerPoint: Each item on a page is an object. For example, a set of bulleted text items is an object that you can drag or format (Figure 2.14).

    Figure 2.14. In PowerPoint handles appear around a selected object on a slide.


  • In Access: Select a cell, and then drag down a column or across a row to create a selected group (Figure 2.15).
