    Hi Deltalee!

    Thanks for your note!

    Do you mean that you'd like to copy the frame + text+ picture several times on the same page (as though it is a single object?).

    If so, what you can do is "group" your frame + text+ picture. To do that, hold the CTRL key, then click on the frame, text and picture to select them, then right-click and choose Group from the dropdown menu.

    Or, you can left-click your mouse just outside the frame + text+ picture then drag your mouse across to select them all, then right-click and choose Group.

    Once the objects are Grouped it's like you've turned them into a single object - you can copy and paste the grouped object as you would any individual object.

    (If you want to break out the individual items again to edit them or move them separately, just select the "Grouped" object, then right-click and choose "Ungroup")

    Hope that's what you were after - if you need clarification or have any other questions, please let us know!
