Excel 2010 Anchor a text box to a chart

Hi Experts,

I need to place text boxes on top of a graph/chart, however, if I print or pdf the document the text boxes move out of place.  I've tried grouping the text boxes but I can't seem to include the chart in the group.  How do I anchor the text boxes to the chart so that they will   remain where they should?

If you click on the chart and go to the Format tab of the temporary Chart tools section, you will be able to insert shapes (like text boxes) from the Insert Shapes section that will stick to the chart.

I was also able to group the separate text box...

Select the text box, then hold CTRL key, select the chart... then the key is to right click on the text box (not the chart) and then you can/should be able to group.

In your version of Excel, it is in the Layout tab
