After you have aligned shapes to a group of shapes, in some cases, you want to move a number of shapes simultaneously or make them share the same formatting properties, like background color and line formatting. Grouping can help you for this purpose exactly. By grouping shapes, shapes within the group will move together when moving any shape inside the group. If you edit formatting of one shape, all shapes will also be shared.
