Windows 7: MS Office 2007 Picture Problem?

Thanks for helping anyway.

Out of interest, was I allowed to post this because this isn't about Windows 7?
And have you ever used Linux before and what do you think of it if you have?

I suggest you first draw a box (Insert > Shapes > click on the rectengular box > draw box - any approximate size, you can always adjust later). Then you go to Drawing Tool > Shape fill > Picture and get the picture from there. Now you can apply the wrapping scenarios to the box. That should work - has never failed me.

PS: I have used Linux (Ubuntu and Fedora). I don't like it at all. Not very user friendly and old fashioned. And although I am a programmer by trade, I found it more difficult to navigate than Windows.

Thanks that works!
But what if I was inserting a lot of pictures- wouldn't this take longer?

P.S. I'm starting to like Linux after using my friend's laptop- I guess some people like it and some don't. And it's all down to opinion and I think you should feel free to use whatever OS you want.

P.S.S Does this problem occur in Office 2003 as well?

I am glad you got it to work. I guess it would take a bit extra time with the boxes. But you can do other nice things with the box - e.g. set it to 3D, set 3D the borders to different colors, make shadow effects, change the shape, etc.

Here are some examples:

That's nice but the only drawback on doing this is that you can't copy and paste- can you?

Sure you can copy/paste (e.g. into another word file). I always do that when I develop longer documents. I write them in sections and then I copy/paste them together.

I mean when you copy and paste into a rectangular shape and then resize it, the picture doesn't resize with the box so you have to do it manually. Oh and the picture problem I had about the picture nudging upwards, is this only a Linux problem and why does it say on the MS website that this is normal but I do not see anyone else having this problem (e.g on YouTube)?

Thanks for the help

You do not Copy/Paste into the shape. You get the picture from here:

So this isn't just a WINE problem? And this hasn't been fixed yet? And there is no bug fix patch by Microsoft?

You lost me. I don't know what problem you are talking about. If you refer to Copy/Paste, that is just the wrong way of doing it.
