    my 4th attempt after signing up so will keep it short.
    Use a screen capture after arranging a page in word and then use the pic of that page et voila!
    I just wanted an arrow on my pic pointing at something and could not select both pic and arrow to group them and found that solution, a little different that what is suggested here but it may help too

    I want to put several outline boxes on a picture. I followed all your steps, but the outline boxes did not group and they were not copied and pasted along with the picture. I have been trying to do this for years and years with several different versions of Word and have never found a procedure that allows me to copy any shapes I draw onto pictures.
