OpenOffice Calc User Guide

Groups several different objects together so that they behave as one. For example, grouping four objects would allow you to move them as one. To group objects together:

  1. Hold down Shift and left-click on each object until they are all selected.

  2. When all are selected, right-click and from the context menu select Group > Group.

  3. If an existing group is selected, this menu may include options to Ungroup, Edit Group and Exit Group.

Once objects are grouped, they cannot be moved relative to each other; they have to move as a group.

If you want to change their position, right-click and choose Group > Edit Group from the context menu. Editing the group allows you to change the objects’ relative position without first ungrouping them (you can also edit other individual properties).

When you are done editing the group, you have to exit the group to do anything else. Right-click and choose Group > Exit Group from the context menu.


If, having worked with groups, you cannot select certain objects, try selecting Group > Exit Group from the context menu.
