Windows 7: Wrapping text in Outlook 2007

Wrapping text in Outlook 2007

I am trying to "Tight" wrap text around clipart in an email using Outlook 2007. If I insert the clipart over the text and then right click the clipart/text wrapping/tight the text appears above and below the clipart and to the right but there is a blank area to the left of the clipart with no text and with the picture in the centre of the page where I placed it.

What am I doing wrong because this works perfectly in a Word document with the text wrapped tightly around the clipart and as Outlook uses Word and has the same tools I would have thought that it should work in the same way.

Any thoughts please?

Mmmm...this problem is also in Outlook 2010..........Outlook on left, Word on right. Sorry Judesman, no matter what I do, I cannot get Outlook to display the same way as Word. A bug perhaps? Lets see if others know of a way around this...

Is perhaps that you need to use "Square" not "Tight"? :



Insert/paste pictures as This option displays how Outlook inserts pictures relative to the text in your e-mail. You can insert images inline with text, allow images to move with text, or wrap text around, in front of, or behind an image. In the drop-down list, select one of the following:
  • In line with text This option inserts the graphic in a paragraph as if it were text. This option is used by default. The graphic moves as you add or delete text. You can drag the graphic to reposition it the same way that you drag text.
  • Square This option wraps the text around all sides of a square around the graphic. The graphic does not move as you add or delete text, but you can drag the graphic to reposition it.
  • Tight This option wraps the text around the graphic in an irregular shape around the actual image. The graphic does not move as you add or delete text, but you can drag the graphic to reposition it.
  • Behind text This option inserts the graphic so that the graphic floats on its own layer behind the text. There is no border around the graphic. The graphic does not move as you add or delete text, but you can drag the graphic to reposition it.
  • In front of text This option inserts the graphic so that the graphic floats on its own layer in front of the text. There is no border around the graphic. The graphic does not move as you add or delete text, but you can drag the graphic to reposition it.
  • Through This option wraps the text around the graphic, including filling the space created by a concave shape, such as a crescent moon. The graphic does not move as you add or delete text, but you can drag the graphic to reposition it.
  • Top and bottom This option prevents text from wrapping on the sides of the graphic. The graphic does not move as you add or delete text, but you can drag the graphic to reposition it.

Thank you Golden and Irene.

The problem is exactly as appears in Golden's first image except the picture is in the middle of the page and the area to the left is blank as depicted.

Irene; square or tight the problem is the same.

I have to say that I don't usually need to wrap text in an email but I don't understand why it doesn't work whilst all seems to be OK with Word.

Thanks for your input. Perhaps someone else will come up with a solution.

This is a shot in the dark, but you could try:
From the Help menu on the top right, choose Office Diagnostics.

Who knows, just might do the trick.

Thank you Irene. I have looked at Office Help in Outlook and trawled through Google but can't find any help anywhere.

It seems odd that it works in Word but not in Outlook when Word is the email editor.
