Align text boxes and images. Select the objects you want to line up, and then
click the Align button (Alt, JD, AA). A menu opens, letting you choose how you
want to align the selections: left, center, right, top, middle, bottom, and so on.
Page 569 explains more about these alignment options.
Group objects. If you want to treat two or more objects as a single entity, select
them and click Group, and then select Group from the menu that opens (Alt,
JD, AG, G). Word glues them together (so to speak) so you can work with them
as a single object—moving or resizing everything in the group with one action.
To unglue the grouped objects, select the group, click the Group button again,
and choose Ungroup (Alt, JD, AG, U).
Rotate objects. Select an object and click Rotate (Alt, JD, AY) to rotate or flip it.
Order objects. You can put text boxes and other objects on top of one another—
insert a shape, for example, and then put a text box on top of it so the shape
becomes a background for the text. To change the order of objects, use the Bring
Forward and Send Backward buttons:
Bring Forward (Alt, JD, AF, F) moves the object forward one place in
the stack.
Bring to Front (Alt, JD, AF, R) moves the object to the top of a stack of
objects, in front of all other objects.
Bring in Front of Text (Alt, JD, AF, T) places the selected object in front
of any text.
Send Backward (Alt, JD, AE, B) moves the object back one place in
the stack.
Send to Back (Alt, JD, AE, K) moves the object to the bottom of the stack,
behind all other objects.
Send Behind Text (Alt, JD, AE, H) places the selected object behind
any text.
Web Page Design
Most people don’t think of Word as a web page editor, but if you like working with
Word, you can use it to create pages to post to your website. The trick is in
knowing how to format the page so it’ll look good on the Web—and not like a couple of
manuscript pages you decided to post. This section explains your options for saving
the files you’ll put up on the Web and shows you how to set up a template for
creating multiple web pages that share the same design.
Saving a Word Document as a Web Page
Normally, when you save a Word document, you save it as a .docx or .doc file. Those
file formats are for working with Word (and a few other word processors, like
OpenOffice.org Writer, that can also read them), but they’re no good for files you put on
