Change Default Text Wrapping
You've got a great picture to illustrate your text, and you know exactly where you want it to be positioned. Once you insert the picture, however, it can not be easily moved until you change how text wraps around the graphic (which can be applied individually for each graphic).
It's likely that the default text wrapping option, In Line With Text, is not the best option if you want specific control over the position of graphics in your Microsoft Word documents. To modify your preferences:
Click the File tab (Backstage View).
Choose Word Options from the left of the screen.
Move to the Advanced group of options.
Scroll down to find the Cut, copy, and paste options and move to the Insert/paste pictures as option.
In line with text is the default but this choice does not automatically make it easy to move the picture.
- Choose your preferred text wrapping style and then select OK to set your new defaults.
