Text Wrapping in Word


Want to wrap the text around your graphics in Microsoft Word?


This question was answered on August 24, 2006. Much of the information contained herein may have changed since posting.

Have you ever noticed that when you insert a picture in MS Word, the program automatically puts it in the line with the text?

I don't know about you, but most of the time, I much prefer that the text wrap around the picture and really integrate it into the document

To make that happen, I usually have to go through and change the formatting for each picture What a pain! I mean, if I'm always going to change the picture formatting, wouldn't it just be more efficient to have Word format the picture to my preferences from the get go?

To change the way Word formats a picture upon insertion, you'll need to go to the Options window (Tools menu, Options choice).

Once in the Options window, you need the Edit tab.

You're looking for the Insert/paste picture as field Use the arrow to pull down the list and choose the formatting you prefer.

Click OK.

And that's it!

Next time you insert a picture, you should find that it is automatically formatted to meet your standards from the very beginning Cheers!
