Duplicating Drawing Objects

Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Word versions: 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. If you are using a later version (Word 2007 or later), this tip may not work for you. For a version of this tip written specifically for later versions of Word, click here: Duplicating Drawing Objects.

The objects you create using the Drawing toolbar are made up of two types of objects—text and graphics. Many times you will have a need to duplicate an object in your drawing. You do this by using the Clipboard.

All you need to do is select the object (or objects) you wish to duplicate and then copy them to the Clipboard. This is most easily done by just pressing Ctrl+C. Paste the objects back into your drawing (Ctrl+V) and then move them to the desired position.

Here's another way..........
- Paste an image into your doc. Then,
- Select the image;
- Hold down the Ctrl key;
- While holding down the Ctrl key, move your mouse pointer over the image.
- Click and hold down the left button (you will see a + symbol as you "drag out" an exact copy of the image you have selected.
- Very handy way to make sure the shapes you create match exactly.
