Text formatting in MS Word 2010

Hello guys,

Can you please help me to format text in MS Word document? The text is divided in two columns and I want to insert an image in the text, but I want to make the image a bit larger so it can occupy more space in the left column.

Please have a look at the attached picture.

Thank you.

It's not clear what you really want. If you want to resize the image, just click on it. There should be rectangles in the mid-points of the sides, top and bottom. Drag any of those, as appropriate, to change the size.

I want to place an image to occupy the whole right column and only a part of the left column. If I try to just resize the image, whole block of the text left moves.

I assume you have a two (more more) column page format and you have inserted your document text. Now you want to insert an image somewhere in the body text, of any column, then resize the image so it spands across a column divider (pic is wider than the column width). Easy to do but takes multiple steps.


Starting point.

Click on desired insert location then press ENTER to insert a carriage return (line break).

On the menu bar/tool ribbon, click on the Insert tab then the Picture icon.

Navigate to your image, select it then click the INSERT button.

Your image will be inserted at the location you selected and should be the width of the column.

Now you set the image properties prior to resizing. Right click on the image, scroll down to Wrap Text, slide over to and click on Square.

To resize the image, move your pointer to a corner where the pointer becomes a two headed diagonal arrow. Click-hold-drag-release to resize the image.
