Resize and position objects, proportionally scale objects

Getting there

So you draw picture boxes the same way you do text boxes.  When inserting a graphic, the program will ask you to size the graphic to the box, or the box to the graphic.  To move the graphic, click and drag in the middle of the object.

To resize, you must first click in the object.  You will see little boxes called DRAG HANDLES all around the object.  The handles in the corner will drag the object proportionally.  The handles in the middle of the sides will resize that dimension of the object.

Exercise #1

Place a graphic into a document and resize it.
