Picture in Word 2007 Form

Posted on 2009-02-17

I know how to just have the user insert a normal picture using the Picture Content Control.  What I need is to be able to allow the user to enter a picture that has text wrapped around it.  The text will also be a text box that the user will enter information into.

Is this possible?

    Right click on the picture, select "Format Picture".  Under the "Layout" tab you should be able to select different word wrap styles.

    This is all greyed out when using a picture content control in a form.

    It may be that your picture is protected from editing.  On the Ribbon, click on the Developer tab. In the Control group, click on the Properties button. Make sure that the "Contents cannot be edited" box is not checked for your Picture Content Control.  I don't have my 2007 software in front of me, so I may be forgetting something, but good luck!

    No that box is not checked.
