Windows 7: MS Office 2007 Picture Problem?

MS Office 2007 Picture Problem?

I'm not having this problem, but my friend is so I want to help him out, even though it's not about Windows 7, it's about MS Office.

He is using Office 2007 running under Wine in Linux Mint. When he inserts a picture (any kind of picture), and then moves it to another place in the document/ presentation, the picture is not in the exact position where he placed it. It is a couple of centimetres above the position in which he placed it.
Please look at this video:
Video - TinyPic - Free Image Hosting, Photo Sharing & Video Hosting


Any ideas on how to solve this problem?
Has this been fixed in any service packs, maybe a certain update?
(he can't install service packs)

first, highlight your picture in the main body of the page..
now, if you look under Format - to the right, you'll see the "Text-Wrapping" drop-down,
at the bottom of the list there's an entry for "More Layout Options.." click there..
and you'll get the little doggies, as shown in this picture:
-picpos.jpg

check to see if there is already a default entry there indicating the positioning and reduce it to zero, if necessary

- it should give you the freedom to put the picture anywhere on the page

watch the positioning if you intend to print, though - as you may place the picture outside the printable area..

Here are the screenshots- what do I do now? BTW, this nudge happens when I put the picture anywhere on the page.
On the Microsoft website it says this but it never happened to me on Windows:
''The incremental, or nudge, distance is a 1 pixel (pixel: A single unit of measurement that your computer's display hardware uses to paint images on your screen. These units, which often appear as tiny dots, compose the pictures displayed by your screen.) increment. What 1 screen pixel represents relative to the document area depends on the zoom percentage. When your document is zoomed in to 400%, 1 screen pixel is a relatively small nudge distance on the document. When your document is zoomed out to 25%, 1 screen pixel is a relatively large nudge distance on the document.''

- try using the "Behind Text" option in the Text Wrapping drop-down..

Still not working...
If you look closely at the video, you might notice some things:
The background goes a translucent black colour when moving
The picture shifts downwards when I just hold the picture in its position but when I let go, the picture stays where it is.

I notice you're using cut/copy and paste
- wouldn't using the "Insert" option be easier..?

Even the 'insert' option does the problem.
