Float Image with Text wrapped

Subscribe to Syndicate
If an image is added to a form letter, the default positioning is that the image is inline with the text. That means that as you add more text before the image, the image will float down the page because of the expanded text.


When creating a newsletter or eblast, it can be advantageous to fix the position of the image on the page and allow the text to wrap around it. To do this:
  1. Drag the image onto the form letter approximately where it should be placed
  2. Double click on the image. The formatting window, similar to the image on the right, will appear.
  3. Change the formatting to be Wrap
  4. (optionally) set the space from text:
    • This is the white space that the form letter will leave around the image
    • You can set values for one or more of the left, right, top or bottom of the image
    • In the example, white space will be created only at Left border of the image for 0.2
  5. Close the Format Picture window. The text is now wrapped around the image
  6. Click on the image and drag it to the desired location in the document and the text will format automatically.


An Example is shown below:

The example shows placement of one image on a form letter. This can be repeat this as many times as needed in order to move images around on the page when creating a letter or email.

  1. The image for happy New Year is dragged onto the document and landed between text

  2. By double clicking on the image the parameters for wrapping and space around the image can be set

  3. Click on the image and drag it to the desired location in the document. In this case, the image is dragged to the right and the text formates nicely around it.
