Align and arrange objects on a page

The added autoshapes, images, charts or text boxes can be aligned, grouped and ordered on a page. To perform any of these actions, first select a separate object or several objects on the page. To select several objects, hold down the Ctrl key and left-click the necessary objects. To select a text box, click on its border, not the text within it. After that you can use either the icons at the Layout tab of the top toolbar described below or the analogous options from the right-click menu.

Align objects

Group objects

To group two or more selected objects or ungroup them, click the arrow next to the Group icon Group icon at the Layout tab of the top toolbar and select the necessary option from the list:

Alternatively, you can right-click the selected objects, choose the Arrange option from the contextual menu and then use the Group or Ungroup option.
