Wrapping Text Around an Object
When integrating pictures, shapes, charts, tables, or other objects with your text, you need to wrap the text around the object regardless of where it is placed on the page. Rather than having to constantly reset margins and make other tedious adjustments, Word simplifies the task with text wrapping. Unless your object or table is large enough to span the entire page, your layout will look better if you wrap your text around it instead of leaving excessive white space. In addition to wrapping text, you can change the position of the object on the page. You access text wrapping options by using the Wrap Text button on the Page Layout tab or the Layout Options button (New!) directly on the page.
