It doesn't seem to work for me, either, but my
callouts are in a text box. Do I need to apply the
text box to a graphic to make it "group-able?"

Selecting the graphic and the callout and grouping
them was my first
thought, too, but Word won't seem to let me do that.
It treats the items as
though they're two separate types of files.

This would be ideal. Any one else know what I'm
doing wrong?

Karen, select the graphic, then hold down the shift
key and click on the
callout(s). Both the graphic and the callout (also
another graphic,
actually) will both be selected. Then right-click
and select
Grouping/Group. The collected graphic elements now
become all one big
graphic. It may still pop around on you (taking off
Move with Text helps)
but they will at least all move together.
