I need to group shapes, so sr.Group does the job. But when the user switches to nodes manipulation before running the code, this is not working anymore.
ShapeRange.Combine is working but I need to do this thru group.
I was trying to do this grouping manually but after switching to nodes manipulation, you can't select two shapes. Maby this is the reason.
Do you want to programmatically switch to shape selection tool to manually select shapes?
Maybe post some images of the process with the start point, working steps done manually, and end point. There are usually many ways to get the same results. I'm not as good as shark_ in VBA but I can usually re-evaluate even my own long used processes and codes to find ways to enhance or shorten them, when I stop to think about it instead of just running through to get something done.
