Moving and Aligning a Graphic
Moving and Aligning a Graphic
You can move a fl oating graphic by dragging it, just as you dragged the WordArt text
box. When you drag a fl oating graphic to a new paragraph, the anchor symbol moves
to the beginning of that paragraph. When you drag a fl oating graphic to a new position
within the same paragraph, the anchor symbol remains in its original position and only
the graphic moves.
When you move a graphic, it’s a good idea to specify exactly where you want to align
it, and whether you want to align it relative to the page margins or relative to the edge of
the page. Aligning a graphic relative to the margin is usually the best choice, because it
ensures that you don’t accidentally position a graphic outside the page margins,
causing the graphic to get cut off when the page is printed. To specify alignment options for
graphics, you use the Align button in the Arrange group on the Picture Tools Format tab.
To move and align the clip art:
1. Move the mouse pointer over the clip art and then drag it right, and up slightly,
until it is positioned on the right margin, with two or three lines of text above it,
as shown in Figure 4-24.

2. On the Picture Tools Format tab, click the Align button in the Arrange group.
A menu of alignment options opens. Near the bottom of the menu, you can
choose between aligning the graphic relative to the margin (Align to Margin) or
relative to the edge of the page (Align to Page). Align to Margin is selected by
default, so you can go ahead and select the alignment margin you want. In this
case, you want to align the graphic to the right margin.
