Hi,

I have formed a process using SmartArt and would like to add icons to the chart area, which works fine! But, when copying or marking in order to move or resize, icons are not following. Is there any work arounds on this issue?

Thanks for replying. The problem with grouping objects is the need of marking the chart area and every single object within that area in order to group them -.-

Another issue is that the grouping of all objects seem to disappear from time to time, so I need to re-do it every now and then.

Any work around?

  • If all objects involved are shapes, you can use the code below.
  • It assumes unique shape names. If there are duplicated names, we can refer by index.

Code:
Public Sub GShapes()
Dim sh As Shape, shn(), ns%, ws As Worksheet
Set ws = ActiveSheet
For Each sh In ws.Shapes
    ReDim Preserve shn(ns)
    shn(ns) = sh.Name
    ns = ns + 1
Next
ws.Shapes.Range(shn).Group
End Sub
