I am helping a friend who is submitting a manuscript for a book to be published. It is in the form of a Microsoft Word 2010 document. The manuscript / book has about 100 pictures embedded in it at various locations within the document.
The publisher has asked him to separate the text part from the pictures. They want the pictures removed and "placeholders" put in their place to indicate where a particular picture is to be placed.
Right-clicking on the picture will enable us to save the picture as a file with no problem. Our problem occurs when we REMOVE the picture from the page after we have saved it as an image. When we do this, often text from the next page will "bleed up" to the page where the picture was and this messes up the formatting and continuity of the whole document obviously.
Given this, the question then is: How Can We Remove the Pictures From the Word Document and Preserve the Page Formatting, With No Shifting Around of Text From Other Pages.
