  • 3. how do i insert a picture so I can move it and flip it?

  • 4. Printing text boxes, but not watermark
    Is there any way to print text boxes, but not print background graphics/watermarks? I am trying to create a Word document that has a picture of an invitation the user will be printing to, with text boxes put in strategic places so that they can just type in them and print away. I want them to have the picture of the invitation in the background so that they can see how it will look before they print. BUT, I don't actually want the picture to print out. I know that to keep a watermark from printing, you can go to "Print Options..." and uncheck "Print drawings created in Word". But, I have text boxes I want to print out--this checkbox will disable watermarks -and- text boxes. Thank you for reading, and any suggestions are most welcome.

You can use a two-column table without borders; put the picture
(positioned "In line with text") in the left cell and the caption in
the right one.

There's no setting to have them inserted that way - as you've apparently
discovered the only options are Above or Below.

Once inserted, however, they can be treated as any other text content,
although you may have to apply Text Wrapping to the picture in order to get
the placement you want... Cut/paste, drag 'n' drop, as long as you have a
text line where you want to put them. If the image is set to In Line with
Text it may be more limiting - the caption & the picture will be set on the
same baseline (although adjustments can also be made in
Format>Font>Character Spacing - Position.)

Alternatively, I believe you can manually insert the SEQ fields & caption
content if you wish, but you'll still have to deal with the same type of
adjustments. I've never done it this way, though, on the few occasions where
I've wanted captions beside the object.

4.Changing position of picture removes captions


I'm trying to reformat some photos in my document, but 
when I alter the formatting (wrap, position, boundaries, 
etc.), the caption is scrubbed off and placed in the 
paragraph next to the photo (with "Figure X" converted to 
normal text).

I've also tried placing the photo where I want it on the 
page first (with wrapping attributes, etc.), but then the 
caption option is not available.

I'm trying to create paragraph text to the left of a set 
of photos.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.
