Word Image layout fix

2009/03/06 by Lassi A. Liikkanen

Microsoft Word problem : Objects go over text

Problem:
Word does not clear out space above a picture, new drawing, or any other embedded object (or linked object, does not matter). Instead, the object overlaps the text above and creates a layout error..

Solution:
You must select “In line with text” layout option for Text wrapping. However, this will not work if you have set an exact line spacing value in paragraph properties. You should change the paragraph in which you want to embed the object to use relative spacing so Word understands how much space will the embedded objects needs.
