Default Trouble using the arrow keys on a excel chart I copied into powerp

I have charts created in excel and then copied into powerpoint (2007)...when
I select the boarder of the chart and try and move it with the arrow keys, it
does not work for me…this was possible in my previous version of
powerpoint…does anyone know why it doesn’t work in this new version? Is there
some other key I have to hit at the same time as the arrow keys to get it to
move?

Hold down ctrl while you select then use the arrow keys.

Hi John, thanks for your suggestion, but it doesn't work for me. I'm not
sure why. Should it? Is it possible something was not installed correctly
on my computer? It is not working on my co-workers machine either...

Click away from the chart.

Press CTRL.

Then click the chart.

You should now have little round selection handles on the chart, and at this
point, using the arrows on your keyboard will nudge the chart.
