Default Grouping text boxes

In powerpoint 2007, if you make a new slide and then change the layout to "Content with caption", you get two textboxes on the left side - "click to add title" and "click to add text". If I put "MyTitle" in the top one and "MyText" in the second one, and then go the "format" ribbon and try to group them, I cannot - it is grayed out. I read something about that you can't group "placeholder" text boxes, but don't they become real text boxes once I type text in them? Any hints on how to group these two?

Unfortunately those placeholders themselves cannot be grouped. One option would be to add real text boxes on top of those placeholders. Keep in mind to have those boxes over the placeholders in order to be able to select them.
