Change text wrapping

The Wrapping Style option determines the way the object is positioned relative to the text. You can change the text wrapping style for inserted objects, such as shapes, images, charts, text boxes or tables.

Change text wrapping for shapes, images, charts, text boxes

To change the currently selected wrapping style:

  1. select a separate object on the page left-clicking it. To select a text box, click on its border, not the text within it.
  2. open the text wrapping settings:
    • switch to the the Layout tab of the top toolbar and click the arrow next to the Wrapping icon Wrapping icon, or
    • right-click the object and select the Wrapping Style option from the contextual menu, or
    • right-click the object, select the Advanced Settings option and switch to the Text Wrapping tab of the object Advanced Settings window.
  3. select the necessary wrapping style:
    • Wrapping Style - Inline Inline - the object is considered to be a part of the text, like a character, so when the text moves, the object moves as well. In this case the positioning options are inaccessible.

      If one of the following styles is selected, the object can be moved independently of the text and positioned on the page exactly:

    • Wrapping Style - Square Square - the text wraps the rectangular box that bounds the object.

    • Wrapping Style - Tight Tight - the text wraps the actual object edges.

    • Wrapping Style - Through Through - the text wraps around the object edges and fills in the open white space within the object. So that the effect can appear, use the Edit Wrap Boundary option from the right-click menu.

    • Wrapping Style - Top and bottom Top and bottom - the text is only above and below the object.

    • Wrapping Style - In front In front - the object overlaps the text.

    • Wrapping Style - Behind Behind - the text overlaps the object.

If you select the Square, Tight, Through, or Top and bottom style, you will be able to set up some additional parameters - Distance from Text at all sides (top, bottom, left, right). To access these parameters, right-click the object, select the Advanced Settings option and switch to the Text Wrapping tab of the object Advanced Settings window. Set the necessary values and click OK.

If you select a wrapping style other than Inline, the Position tab is also available in the object Advanced Settings window. To learn more on these parameters, please refer to the corresponding pages with the instructions on how to work with shapes, images or charts.

If you select a wrapping style other than Inline, you can also edit the wrap boundary for images or shapes. Right-click the object, select the Wrapping Style option from the contextual menu and click the Edit Wrap Boundary option. Drag wrap points to customize the boundary. To create a new wrap point, click anywhere on the red line and drag it to the necessary position. Editing Wrap Boundary
