Table 17-3 Text Wrapping Choices
When You Want to
In Line With Text
Keep the image in line with the text so that it moves along with
the current paragraph (this is selected by default).
Wrap the text to the left and right of the image.
Flow the text right up to the edge of the selected object with no
outer margin of white space.
Flow the text over the image.
In Front Of Text
Display the text behind the image.
Top And Bottom
Flow the text above and below—but not through—the image. Text
does not appear on the sides of the image; this is left blank.
Flow text up to the border of your picture (you can use this with
Edit Wrap Points to create a special text low for your pages).
Edit Wrap Points
Create a new boundary for your image that enables you to design
the way the text wraps around it.
My images are only displaying halfway.
If the image is not displaying completely, check your Wrap Text settings. Display the
Wrap Text choices (in the Arrange group) and click Top And Bottom or In Front Of Text.
If the image still doesn’t display properly, check with the manufacturer of your graphics
card to see whether an updated driver is available.

You can use the Edit Wrap Points choice in the Text Wrapping list to create your own
boundary for text low in your document. You do this by simply dragging one of the edit
points into a position that shows the text where to low. Here’s how it’s done:
1. Select the image you want to use.
