Default Group objects in Office

Hello,

I am trying to 'group' some objects with Word2007, but this doesn't work. I don't know what i am doing wrong.

Normally I have two things i will 'group':
1.) a shape/illustration/other object (this case it is a .pdf picture)
2.) a text-field with the subtext for that picture, which I make up with no black box around it and with no filling.

Then i want to right-click the two things to 'group' it and I will have a nice figure for my document.



Greetings,
Alfie

This is one that I have encountered myself - it was a real pain until I discovered a method to get round the issue!!!

Try doing the following (don't ask me WHY it works, it just does)

Right-click the .pdf image and choose:

(2003) Format Image > Layout (tab) > Advanced > Text Wrapping (tab) > Top and Bottom

(2007) Text Wrapping > Top and Bottom


Now, try clicking OFF the image, clicking on it again (to select) and then Ctrl+Click on the other object - it should allow you to select the two for grouping now - though it will probably lose the Text Wrapping format, so if there is a particular one that you want, you should now be able to apply it to your new grouped object!!

I Performed the above six steps, but it wont work. I also tried it with a jpeg... It wont work...

Any other suggestions?
