Selecting an Object

As you have seen, you can add charts to a worksheet, draw objects, insert pictures, and more. Each of these items exists on a separate layer on top of the worksheet and is generically called an object. As you discover in the next several tasks, you can format, move, resize, and delete objects; first, however, you must select the object you want to modify.



1. Click the object you want to select; selection handles appear around the edges of the object.

2. Move the mouse over the object border; the pointer becomes a four-headed arrow and you can move it; a two-headed arrow enables you to resize it.


Note: Selecting Multiple Objects

To select multiple objects, click the first object, press and hold down the Shift key, and click the second object. Continue until you select all the objects you want.


Formatting an Object

You can format objects just as easily as you format text, data, and worksheets. Depending on the object, the standard formatting options you can change are as follows: font (text changes in the object), alignment (where text aligns in the object), colors and lines (whether lines are filled, colored, or have arrows), size (the height, width, and scale of the object), protection (whether others can alter your object), properties (how you position the object and whether you can print it), and Web (text to display while the object loads online).


1. Click the object you want to format; selection handles appear around the edges of the object.

2. Right-click the object.

3. Select Format [object name] (here, Shape) from the shortcut menu.

4. A Format [object name] dialog box opens. Click the available tabs, alter the formatting options as needed, and click Close.

5. The formatting changes are applied to the object.


Note: Double-Click to the Format Dialog Box

You can also double-click directly on the object to automatically open the Format dialog box associated with it.
