I know the steps for  getting picture to have text wrap around it, but none of the tips or tutorials online tell you how to connect the picture with the text that you want to wrap it with. How do i inset the picture into a table or a text box? This is intended for print, and one of the pages i found said that your publisher document has to be a print doc not a web doc but I can't figure out where I go (in Publisher 2010) to find out which one I've got. Obviously I'm a newbie.

I can't find Publisher as a zone in EE so I'm posting it in Word.

Thanks,
John

Hi. Don't worry about print vs. web doc. This refers (I believe) to the method of exporting your final copy.

As for wrapping text around the image.

1.Click the picture to select it.
2.Click the contextual tools tab.
For example, if you select a photograph or clip art, click the Picture Tools tab. If you select an AutoShape, click the Drawing Tools tab.

3.In the Arrange group, click Wrap Text.
4.Do one of the following:
Click Square to wrap text around the border of your image.
Click Tight to wrap text closely around a clip art image or an irregularly shaped picture.
Click Top and Bottom to place the image on its own line.
Click Through and then click Edit Wrap Points to drag the wrap points closer to the image, so that text can fill in more of the negative space around the image.
Click More Layout Options and then click the Text Wrapping tab to change where the text wraps. If you click the Square style, you can also change the distance between the text and the image.

Hi digitaljedi, thanks for posting. I've gone through these steps already. What I can't figure how to do is get the text to wrap around the picture! Pls take a look at this Publisher file and let me know what I do to connect the text to the picture. You can't upload .pub files to EE, so here's a link to a sample doc:

If you can upload the file, the please edit it so that the text wraps around the picture and write down how you did it and send me a link to the file

Thanks!

Sometimes I amaze myself at how dense I can be. The problem was that I had the picture underneath the text!

Thanks for your help.
