Nudge graphics in Word

Dragging and dropping a graphics object in Word is easy, but it can be imprecise.

Solution: use Word's built-in "nudging" ability. To move in very small increments, just select the object by clicking on it, and then press the cursor keys to "nudge" it in any direction. For even finer control, hold down while pressing the cursor keys to move the object in one-pixel increments. This works in all versions of Word. Hint: if the object is contained in a frame or text box, click the frame or text border to select it.
