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?
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.
Hi Gary, great videos - I've learnt a lot from your videos - thanks!
After watching your tutorial on editing shapes I got hooked!
Do you know if there is a way within pages to alter the perspective of a grouped object ie I've created a window frame with panes and a sill for instant - but I want to transform it so that it looks as if it is a side window - with the left side narrower that the right side - going towards a "vanishing point" - I can paste it into Sketch and use Transform - HELP!
John: There are no tools like that in Pages/Numbers/Keynote. If you want to do things like that, get an app like Adobe Illustrator or Affinity Designer and make those graphics there. Then import them into your document as an image or a PDF.
