Share

Grouping elements in Google Slides allows us to move around the different elements that make up the design of a slide and modify them (for example, rescaling) or apply any property to them, such as an effect or a fill/stroke color. In this new Slidesgo School tutorial, you’ll learn how to group or ungroup elements in Google Slides step by step. 

Grouping Elements

  • Open your presentation in Google Slides.
  • Select the elements that you want to group. You can click and drag to select more than one or you can click the elements individually while holding the Shift key. Remember that you can only group images or shapes, but not text boxes. Besides, these elements must be in the same slide.
Selecting multiples elements
  • Once you’ve selected the elements you want to group, click Arrange → Group. As an alternative, you can do any of the following: 
    - Right-click → Group.
    - Press Ctrl + Alt + G (Windows) or Cmd + Alt + G (Mac).
    - Right-click the selected elements → Group.
