Microsoft Office Word 2007 enables you to wrap text easily around pictures, shapes, and tables with any position or style that you want.
What do you want to do?
Wrap text around a picture or drawing object
If the picture or object is on a drawing canvas, select the canvas. If the picture or object is not on a drawing canvas, select the picture or object.
On the Format tab, in the Arrange group, click Position.
If the Arrange group is collapsed and Position isn't visible, click the Arrange button, and then click Position.
Click the wrapping position that you want to apply.
Tip Drag the picture or object if you want to change its position on the page. The text wrapping adjusts to the object in its new location.
To change how the text flows around the object, or make other changes to the wrap settings, in the Arrange group, click Text Wrapping and then click the option that looks best.
Wrap text around a table
Click the table.
Under Table Tools, on the Layout tab, in the Table group, click Properties.
Under Text Wrapping, click Around.
To set the horizontal and vertical position of the table, the distance from surrounding text, and other options, under Text Wrapping, click Positioning, and then choose the options that you want.
Wrap text automatically when you draw a table
On the Insert tab, in the Tables group, click Table.
Press CTRL while you click Draw Table.
Draw the table.
The text automatically wraps around the table.
For more information about drawing a table, see Draw a table.
Separate text around objects on Web pages
Text wrapping breaks are used to separate the text around objects on Web pages. For example, you can use a text wrapping break to separate caption text from body text.
1. Text break in the caption
Click your Web page where you want the wrapped text to end.
On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Breaks, and then click Text Wrapping.
Note Text wrapping breaks are formatting marks that aren't usually visible in your document. If you want to view these breaks, turn on the formatting marks by clicking Show/Hide in the Paragraph group on the Home tab. The text wrapping break character () indicates a text wrapping break.
