    In Powerpoint 2007, Iím not able to shift around the charts on a slide using the keyboard arrows and have to use the mouse which I donít find very accurate. Is there a way of changing this?

    What happens if you select an object and hold down the Ctrl key while pressing arrow keys on the keyboard?

    Nearly Hans!!

    Hold down Ctrl and click to SELECT now use the arrow keys alone.

    Thank you very much! That's about the one thing I hadn't tried.

    Yes it's certainly not obvious. I think that in 2007 the graph engine is from Excel where nudging is not at all important THEN PowerPointers saw it and went "WHAAAAT" so MSoft added a quick but well hidden fix.
