Computer Fundamentals for Teachers
Competency #8 Media Communications
Module #

Create, place, format, & position graphics elements (draw and position objects, group, ungroup objects, shade, color)

Getting there

So the only thing new here is the group stuff.  GROUPING will turn multiple items into one object.  This is handy if you want to make a custom logo.   Then when you want to move the logo one inch to the left, it stays in one piece.

Simply select all the objects you want grouped, then go to ARRANGE (in Publisher) and choose GROUP OBJECTS.  To undo this later, click on the objects and choose UNGROUP.

Exercise #1

Try it!  Insert some graphics into a document and try grouping them.
