Manipulating graphics
You can manipulate graphics in many ways in Excel, as shown in the following table.
ACTION
METHOD
Size
Position the cursor on the sizing handle, and the cursor becomes a
doubleheaded arrow. Drag to increase or decrease the size and shape. Hold down
the Shift key to retain the image’s original proportions as you make it
larger or smaller.
Rotate
Position the cursor on the rotation handle, and the cursor becomes a
curved arrow. Click and drag the rotation handle to rotate the image
clockwise or counter-clockwise around the rotation handle.
Shape
Position the cursor on the shaping handle, and the cursor becomes an
arrowhead. Drag the cursor to reshape the side or section of the image.
Note that reshaping a 3D graphic can alter its perspective.
Move
Position the cursor on the graphic, and the cursor becomes a cross with
arrows. Drag the graphic to its new location in the worksheet.
Snap to grid
For a drawn graphic, such as a predefined shape, text box, clip art, or
WordArt, click the Drawing Tools tab. In the Arrange group, click Align (
),
and then select Snap to Grid.
For an imported picture or digital photo, click the Picture Tools tab. In the
Arrange group, click Align, and then select Snap to Grid.
For SmartArt, click Format on the SmartArt Tools tab. In the Arrange group,
click Align, and then select Snap to Grid.
Nudge
Click a graphic and press an arrow key (up, down, left, or right). Excel
moves the image a small amount in the direction of the key you pressed.
Delete
Click a graphic and press the Delete key.
