I'm hoping someone here can help me find a solution to a PowerPoint 2000 issue.

I'm working in a PowerPoint 2000 file with several animations. Most of
the animations are grouped objects.

I need to make edits to pieces of the
grouped objects (like move textboxes), but if I ungroup the objects so I can
move them, I break the animation. This is driving me crazy -- I don't want
to study then rebuild all the animations.

I know I can highlight text within
a textbox and change text properties without ungrouping -- but in these cases,
I actually need to move the textbox.

Does anyone know of a way to select
and move single object (such as textbox, not the text) in a group of objects?
