Unable to select an image to delete it.

Using Word 2007, I have inserted an image into a table cell and selected Text Wrapping, Behind Text.  I am now unable to select the image to edit or delete is. Does anyone know how to select the image? If I insert the image into any other part of the document there is no problem it is just within the table the issue occurs.

Are you sure you selected "Behind Text?" Is there any way you can attach a screen shot?

Hi afct,

Try to right click on the image you want to delete and select "cut" and see what happens.

The image is slightly grayed and yes I selected "Behind Text" actually it is another persons issue.

I have recreated the issue in the attached document.

Also here is a screen shot...  http://i300.photobucket.com/albums/nn3/whatever60/screenshot.gif

You could try moving the table so that it not in front of the images, but that could be cumbersome.  You could try running a macro to bring all the images in front of the text and then run another macro to put the images back behind the text (i.e. once you are done editing the images).  See sample code below:
Sub BringImagesToFront
ActiveDocument.Shapes.SelectAll
Selection.ShapeRange.ZOrder msoBringInFrontOfText
End Sub
 
Sub SendImagesToBack
ActiveDocument.Shapes.SelectAll
Selection.ShapeRange.ZOrder msoSendBehindText
End Sub

Finally found the tool I was looking for
In Word on the Home tab, in the Editing group, click Select.

But thanks for your help.  The ribbons can be fairly obscure and the builtin help is next to useless
