Limited Movements

Friday, October 6th, 2006 by | Filed Under: MS Office Help

Limited Movements

Do you use a lot of objects in your Office Suite files? Maybe you use Clip Art in your Word documents or AutoShapes in your Excel files? And if you use PowerPoint, I’m sure you’re always working with some type of object.

When you go to relocate an object, are you frequently frustrated by your inability to control the drag movements?

Let’s say you wanted to slide the object horizontally and you somehow always seem to move it a bit up or down as you drag it left or right.

Interested in a way to control that drag and drop relocation of your objects?

Yeah, me too! I figure, it can never hurt to know every trick possible when it comes to our MS Office files.

Next time you want to move an object either horizontally or vertically (with no accidental wandering in another direction), give the Shift key a try.

Yep, that’s right, a simple Shift + drag of the object will move it either horizontally or vertically but , that’s it. No unintentional “drag drift” for your objects anymore!
