One of the many benefits of using Microsoft Word is that you can incorporate many types of objects along with text, in your documents, such as clip art, digital photos, charts and shapes. Word also provides the tools for you to group these types of objects. When you group two or more pictures or similar items in a Word document, the application then recognises them as one single object, allowing you to move, resize and reposition them as one.
