Combining Inserted Images in Word 2010

  Scrivers 11:10 09 Oct 2010

In previous versions of Word I could combine inserted images/pictures by selecting all inserted images, right clicking and selecting "combine" from the drop down menu. I can't find out how to do this in Office/Word 2010. Can anyone help

Do you mean Group shapes or objects? if so click here

but having said that mine (Word2007) doesn't work, it won't let me select 2 pics to group so will have to investigate why. I have no problem doing it in Word 2003.

You could try pressing the F1 key to see if there is anything listed in HELP

If you set a "Text Wrapping" to your images first then you can select them (Ctrl and click) and then Group is available from the right-click menu. This doesn't work if you leave the images as they are inserted without text wrapping.

Well in Word 2007 with the help of click here I finally managed it.

Darned fiddly carry on compared with Word 2003 :(

I too have been tearing my hair out trying to group frames and boxes as I used to in XP. I followed MS Word 2010 instructions and still could not do it until I accidentally pressed SHIFT instead of CONTROL - and it worked!!! So Microsoft have been leading us up the garden path when telling us to use CTRL when it should have been Shift.

Thanks for letting me know that trick She. I'll give that one a go.
