  • Crop:  Trim or hide one or more edges of a picture.

  • Flip:  Reverse the position of an object.

  • Outcrop:  Use the cropping tool to add a margin around an object.

  • Rotate:  Shift the position of an object in a circular motion around its axis, or center point.

  • Rotation handle:  A small, green circle used to drag an object around in a circle.  The mouse pointer looks like a circular arrow when resting on a rotation handle.

Exercise 74:  Handout #4 - Pg. 421 (74LOGO)

  • Create MS-Word 74LOGO file...

    • Ignore Step 10

      • Right-click, and show the PICTURE Toolbar

      • Click the COLOR option

      • Select WASHOUT

  • Save, Print, and Close document...

Skills Covered: 

  • Adjust Objects

  • Rotate and Flip Objects

  • Crop a Picture

Software Skills:  You can manipulate objects to make sure they are positions the way you want in a document.  You can rotate objects around an axis and flip them horizontally or vertically.  Many drawing objects have adjustment handles, which you can use to alter the most prominent feature of the object.  For example, you can change the mouth on a smiley face from a smile to a frown.

Application Skills:  You've been hired to design a logo for Long Shot, Inc., a company that manufactures golf products.  The company president wants the logo suitable for use on everything from the letterhead and business cards to golf shirts and umbrellas.  In this exercise, you will use text and two graphics objects --one AutoShape and one clip art picture--to create the logo.  You will resize, adjust, and rotate the AutoShape and you will resize, crop, and flip the clip art picture.


Terms:

  • Group:  Select multiple objects and combine them into a single object.

  • Layer:  Position objects and/or text so they overlap on the page.

  • Regroup:  Group objects that have been separated again.

Complete and print 75MEMO

Skills Covered: 

  • Group and Ungroup Objects

  • Layer Objects with Other Objects or Text

Software Skills:  Integrate drawing objects with text to illustrate and enhance documents.  Objects can be layered with each other and with text to create different effects.  For example, you can design a letterhead with text layered on top of a logo created from drawing objects.  You can group objects together to create one complete picture, and ungroup objects to edit them individually.

Application Skills:  In this exercise, create a version of the logo for Long Shot, Inc. that does not include a picture by layering a text box and a shape and then grouping them together.  You will then copy the entire logo into a memo document.

Software Skills:  Make a long document easier to read and work in by inserting page breaks and section breaks, page numbers, and headers and footers and by adjusting margins to accommodate binding.  Page breaks let you control where a new page should start, avoiding page layout problems such as headings at the bottom of a page.  Section breaks let you apply different page formatting to different areas of your document.  Headers and footers let you print information at the top or bottom of every page.

Application Skills:  In this exercise, you will work with a version of the exercise report you outlined in Exercise 52.  You will set margins, insert page breaks and section breaks, apply formatting, and insert headers and footers.  When the report is complete, you will print it.

Application Skills:  As the Manager of in-house training at Long Shot, Inc., you have decided to survey the employees to find out what types of training classes they are interested in.  In this exercise, you will create a form that employees can fill out indicating their class preferences, time preferences, whether they have ever taken an in-house training class, and, if so, whether they were satisfied with the class.  You will print the form, and, finally, you will test the form by filling it out on the computer..
