    RE: Controlling Shape Movement (Word 2000)

    When I use the line drawing facility I cannot align it to position I would like. Pressing the right/left arrow keys moves it too far in either direction and my mouse control cannot guide the line into the required position. Is there a facility where I can adjust/set the extent of the movement, i.e. small movement, by pressing the arrow keys? Thanks.

    Try holding the Ctrl key down while using the arrow keys to position the shape.

    Alternatively, select Drawing | Grid... from the Drawing toolbar to change grid settings, and turn off "Align objects to grid". The arrow keys will now move the shape by pixel.
