Position a graphic within text

Graphic being positioned within text


Use the insertion point to guide you when inserting graphics.

You position a graphic within text (for example, between words or paragraphs) the same way you position it elsewhere, by dragging it. As you drag, let the special insertion point guide you (as shown in the illustration on the left).

By default, the graphic (and also the drawing canvas) acts like a text character, in that it moves with the text; if you insert an extra line of text before the graphic, the graphic will move down a line. This type of graphic is known as an inline graphic.

Keeping an inline graphic in place depends on the text around it. If you add or remove text above the graphic, it will move. Though if you want, you can also fix a graphic's position independent of surrounding text, as you'll see in the next lesson.
