    Gary, is there a difference between Unite and Group shapes?

    Nick: Uniting shapes will combine their lines and curves into a single shape. It merges the actual shape itself. Grouping will keep both shapes separate, but now they move together as a single object when you drag them. Experiment to see. Put a circle and square overlapping somewhat, and set a border and fill for both. Then group them. Then do the same with two shapes by unite them.

    Another great video! I am so glad you have the “back 10 second” button as I use it a lot.

    i agree with gene, the :10 rewind is very useful as are all your videos, thank you!

    I am having trouble regrouping a shape after using the Break Apart option when working with shapes. I do not seem to be able to highlight the the group of shapes using the mouse to then regroup.
    Is there a trick to this?
    Thanks.

    I’m already in the middle of your Numbers course so this video is very helpful. Getting carried away was is not a problem.

    Peter: Try clicking on one shape and then hold the Command key down to click on the others. Or, drag around all the shapes.
