Regroups the group that the specified shape range belonged to previously. Returns the regrouped shapes as a single Shape object.


expression. Regroup

_expression_A variable that represents a ShapeRange object.

Return Value



The Regroup method only restores the group for the first previously grouped shape it finds in the specified ShapeRange collection. Therefore, if the specified shape range contains shapes that previously belonged to different groups, only one of the groups will be restored.

An error occurs if none of the shapes in the specified range were previously members of a group.

Because a group of shapes is treated as a single shape, grouping and ungrouping shapes changes the number of items in the Shapes collection and changes the index numbers of items that come after the affected items in the collection.


This example regroups the selected shapes in the active publication. If the shapes haven't been previously grouped and ungrouped, this example will fail.
