Stack Group Cards in Microsoft Sway

Explore how Stack Group Cards work in Microsoft Sway.


Product/Version: Microsoft Sway

OS: Works in a browser, or as an app

The second type within the Group Cards category in Sway is the Stack Group Card. This Card can only contain Picture Cards. You can add as many Picture Cards as you want, and the resultant Stack Card renders as a conventional stack of pictures.

Stack Group Card

Follow these steps to see how the Stack Group Card works:

  1. Create a new Sway or open an existing one. Then access the All Cards pane and select the Group category, as shown in Figure 1, below.
  2. Group Cards within All Cards pane
    Figure 1: Group Cards within All Cards pane
  3. Note: Is the All Cards pane, as shown in Figure 1 not visible? Then click the Cards option in the menu bar as shown highlighted in red within Figure 2, later on this page.
  4. Then choose the Stack option, highlighted in red within Figure 1. This will place a new Group Card in your Storyline with a Stack Group layout, as can be seen in Figure 2, below.
  5. Stack Group Card added

  6. Click the Add a Picture box, highlighted in blue within Figure 2, above. This will show the Insert pane, as can be seen in Figure 3, below. Options within the Insert pane are explained in our Insert Options in Sway tutorial.

  12. You will also notice that several options are available in the area now. The options in the area highlighted in red within Figure 5 are explained in Step 5 on our Automatic Group Cards in Sway tutorial page. And the area highlighted in blue within Figure 5 is explained in Step 4 on our Picture Cards in Sway tutorial page.
  13. Delete

  14. The last button on the right will delete the entire Group Card with all its contents!
  15. Within the individual Cards contained in the Group, you can do everything you can do with regular Picture Cards, as shown in Figure 6, below. You will notice that this Card sports all the options (area highlighted in red) that are available within a regular Picture Card.
  16. Picture Card within the Group Card

Now here’s some more info: the human brain uses a larger part of its area to store visual information rather than textual content. And that’s possibly because a picture describes so much more than text.
