Click an
object in the
Selection
pane to
select it.
After you select an object, its selection handles appear. Objects have eight
selection handles, one at each corner and one at each side. To tell whether
an object is selected, look for its selection handles.
Hiding and displaying the rulers and grid
Word, PowerPoint, and Excel offer two rulers, one along the top of the
window and one along the left side. Use the rulers to help place and align
objects. To display or hide these rulers, use one of these techniques:
On the View tab, click the Ruler check box. (You may have to click the
Show button first, depending on the size of your screen.) To see the
rulers, you must be in Print Layout view In Word and Page Layout view
in Excel.

Chapter 4
In PowerPoint, you can also hide or display rulers by right-clicking a
slide (but not an object or frame) and choosing Ruler on the shortcut
menu.
In Word and PowerPoint, the grid can come in very handy for aligning
objects. On the View tab, click the Gridlines check box to see the grid. (You
may have to click the Show button first.) The grid settings in PowerPoint are
quite sophisticated (see Book IV, Chapter 4 for details).
