I'm trying to write a simple macro to allow allow a user to modify a pasted picture format. With the default paste, the picture is pasted as an Enhanced Metafile (which is fine). However, the layout is automatically Inline with Text. I'd like it to be behind the text (for easier maniupuation in documents) but can't seem to accomplish that with macros. Am I missing something here?

Thanks.

Record new macro doesnt work here: use this code:
ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(1).ConvertToShape
This will convert the inline shape to a shape and hence it will be behind the text.

you need to know the index of the inline shape that you want to convert. assuming it will always be the first shape that needs to be converted to a shape, use this:

ActiveDocument.InlineShapes(0).ConvertToShape
