Copying and Modifying a Clip
To Ungroup a Clip
The next step is to ungroup the bird clip on Slide 1. When you ungroup a clip art picture, PowerPoint
breaks it into its component objects. A clip may be composed of a few individual objects or several complex groups
of objects. These groups can be ungrouped repeatedly until they decompose into individual objects. Because a clip
art picture is a collection of complex groups of objects, you may need to ungroup a complex object into less com-
plex objects before being able to modify a specii c object. When you ungroup a clip and click the Yes button in
the Microsoft PowerPoint dialog box, PowerPoint converts the clip to a PowerPoint object. The following steps
