Group and ungroup shapes or pictures in Visio for the web

When you group shapes or pictures, you effectively join them so you can move and format them as a combination. For example, you can rotate, flip, move, or resize shapes or pictures at the same time as though they were a single object. You can also ungroup a group of shapes or pictures so you can make changes to a single shape or picture. Then if you want, you can group them again.

Group shapes or pictures

  1. Open the diagram for editing.

  2. Select two or more shapes or pictures.
