Click-n-Drag Objects

Some objects found in the Insert bar are available only in Design view. For this tip, most objects will work in either Code or Design view; just be sure to give either view focus before you try this. Did you know that you can click the objects in the Insert bar and then drag them into position within the Code or Design view? This may not sound useful at first because you could just position your cursor and click the object to insert it. If you’re like me, you click the button, and then realize, “Oops, that’s not where I want to put this.” Too late now—you’ve got to Edit>Undo or Ctrl+Z (Command+Z) and try again. Instead of releasing that click, you could drag the object where you want the object to be inserted. A note of warning (woooooooooo): Be sure not to drag an object onto a bunch of selected code. If you do, the object is going to eat your code for lunch—one meal you’ll want to avoid.
