Moving a Slide Object



To move an object, click on the object to select it.


Drag the slide object to a new location.


Release the mouse button; the slide object is moved.


You can move any slide object, including clip art, pictures, shapes, and even text boxes. You might move an object to change the slide layout, or to better position the object on the slide.


Restricting Movement

If you press and hold the Shift key while dragging the slide object you want to move, the object can be moved only vertically or horizontally.


Nudging a Slide Object

To move a slide object ever so slightly on the slide, use the Nudge command. Select the object, click the Draw button on the Drawing toolbar, select Nudge, and then select a direction to nudge the object.
