    In Word 2003 I was able to insert a picture, add various baloons, etc. to the picture, then select the picture and baloons and group them so they would move as a unit. However, in 2007 I've found no way to perform the same thing. Any suggestion on this?

    What aspect doesn't work for you. I can shift+click to select each item and then rright-click to select Group (or Ungroup). Can you not make multiple selections or...?

    Darned if I know what's going on. I insert a picture. I then add a text balloon on top of the picture. I select the picture. I hold shift down and select the balloon and the picture de-selects. If I first select the balloon and then the picture the balloon de-selects. I cannot get both of them selected at the same time.

    I had the same experience as you so I just looked it up in Help.

    It tells me that to be able to Group graphic objects, I first need to insert a Drawing Canvas, then put the various items into the Drawing Canvas.
