If you are going to insert images along with text in a Word document, the anchor helps, just as its name suggests, in positioning them in different ways.
For instance, you may want the image to remain anchored in the document text in a certain paragraph, while allowing the text to wrap around the image.
The wrapping can have several options, such as arranging the text to appear above or below the image, over the image, or behind it. In short, an anchor in a Word document ensures that the text wraps around the image just as you intend it to.
However, you may want the image to move freely with the text in the document, that is, allow it to be in line with the text.
Word does not use an anchor when the image is in-line with the text, as it treats the image as a character within a sentence in the document.
Although the anchor is a useful tool allowing you greater creative freedom when you are adding images to your document, there are times when you do not want it.
There are two ways to achieve this, and we show you both methods:
- Stop object anchors from showing
- Remove the anchor icon
Let us begin.
