Instructions on how to group
1st Geography lesson of 2014
Date of submission:
Grouping will come useful if you need to move a bunch of things altogether without moving them one by one and trying to get them in the same position.
For example, if you need to move both a circle and an arrow, but you want to keep them in a same position(e.g.arrow below circle), press and hold 'Shift', then press and hold the mouse and drag it across the arrow and circle. A rectangular shape will appear when you do that so you must make sure your rectangle will be big enough to hold both arrow and circle in it.
To ungroup, just click on the thing that you have grouped and click 'Ungroup'.
