    MS Word - Drawing Precision

    In MS Word XP. When I draw a line or box whatever, when I try to move the object it doesn't seem very precise.

    E.g. I can move it up/down/left/right (or so it seems) in increments of 0.2cms.

    If I want to be more precise I have to manually enter the absolute positions in the advanced properties of the object. Surely there is a way to make the moving of object less restricted????

    I don't use XP at the moment, but Word has always been very grudging when it comes to layout. I remember fighting this same problem years ago in previous releases. It used to be you could create a frame around an object and freely drag it around but that feature seems to have been taken away as of Office 2000. Since stumbling upon a copy of Quark XPress I don't use Word for that anymore.

    There certainly is an easier way.

    Hold down the alt key whilst dragging your selection, this will allow you to drop it wherever you want.

    Hope this helped.
