What is a Graphic Object?

A Graphic Object is an object which is not assigned to a symbol. It is either a line or area object with a color from the color table. Here are two examples:
Symbolized text objects are converted into graphic area objects. A point object is taken apart in its fundamental components which are line or area objects, in this case a blue line object (circle).

To convert a graphic object into a layout object choose the Convert into Layout Object function from the Object menu.
