Experts,
In previous versions of Word you could insert a picture, select the picture, and then Insert Frame so you can move the picture to any location. How is this done in Word 7?

Change the Text Wrapping attribute to "Behind Text", and you can move it anywhere you want, no frame necessary. Right-click the picture to bring up the context menu, then choose Wrap Text (or Size and Position).

Nobody understood frames. Their advantage was that you could put several things inside them, and then move them all over the place. They still work, BTW -- but you have to put an Insert Frame command on your Quick Access Toolbar (or on a custom ribbon in 2010).
