OFFICE 2010-2007 : MOVING SHAPES (GRID)

When I move a shape it "jumps" and I can't place it precisely where I want

This comes from the magnetic grid that is automatically on by default when you install Office.
Simply turn it off to make moving and placing easier.

2010-2007 Version

In all programs of the Office family : display the FORMAT Tab - Group ARRANGE - Drop-down menu of the ALIGN button. For Word and PowerPoint the command is GRID SETTINGS - Dialog box and option SNAP OBJECTS TO GRID ...
For Excel, the command is in the menu : SNAP TO GRID

Note : if you do not wish to change this default setting you can "free" the shape by pressing the ALT key while moving it.
