Flow Text Around a Graphic in Microsoft Word

Flow Text Around a Graphic

Question: I have inserted a photo in my Word document but when I try to make my text go around the photo, it will only go above and below it. How can I make it go around the photo?

Answer: Once you have inserted your photo or clip art, left click the object to select it, then right click it to open the shortcut menu. Left click Format Picture. Left click the Layout tab at the top of the dialog box. You will see a row of dogs. They represent how the text will flow around the graphic. To flow the text around the object in an evenly spaced square, click the dog above the word Square. Then left click Left, Center or Right under Horizontal Alignment. This tells the program where you want the photo to appear on your page (at the left, center or right side of the page).

Now left click Advanced in the lower right corner of the dialog box. Left click the Text Wrapping tab at the top of the dialog box. Under Wrap Text, left click beside the way you want your text to wrap around the graphic: Both Sides, Left Only, Right Only or Largest Only. Click OK, click OK again. Voilà. You've wrapped text. If it isn't exactly the way you want, start over and try various other wrapping formats. Congratulations! You're an expert!

Barb Walker is known as The Computer Lady in the Denver, Colorado area where she provides in-home computer training for senior citizens. She has written two computer manuals for seniors, Taming Your Computer -- The Simple Basics, and Taming Your Computer -- Beyond The Basics. Both books have received rave reviews from readers who have been searching for computer instructions they can understand. They are available on her website, http://www.TamingYourComputer.com. Her patient, laid back teaching style makes her a favorite among seniors. "I think I get along so well with seniors because I'm one too. I'm working with my peers. Most of them have had adult children and grandkids try to teach them how to use their computer, but they don't have the patience to explain and demonstrate slowly."
