Group, ungroup, or regroup objects

To work with objects, you use commands on the Drawing toolbar. The Drawing toolbar appears in the lower left corner of the program window. If you don't see the Drawing toolbar, on the View menu, point to Toolbars and then click Drawing.

Do one of the following:

ShowGroup objects

ShowUngroup objects

  1. Select the group you want to ungroup.
  2. On the Drawing toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, press ALT and then SHIFT+F10.), click Draw, and then click Ungroup.

ShowRegroup objects

  1. Select any one of the objects that was previously grouped.
  2. On the Drawing toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, press ALT and then SHIFT+F10.), click Draw, and then click Regroup.

 Note   After you have grouped objects (object: A table, chart, graphic, equation, or other form of information. Objects created in one application, for example spreadsheets, and linked or embedded in another application are OLE objects.), you can still select any single object within the group (group: A collection of objects that behave as one for the purpose of moving, resizing, or rotating them. A group can be composed of multiple sets of groups.) by first selecting the group. Then, click on the object you want to select.
