How To Remove Anchor In Word

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.

How to remove Page Break in Word

Word uses page breaks to separate one page from the next. This may be necessary to position a table or an image completely on a page, without partly spilling over to the next page.

Printers use the page breaks to know when to start with a fresh paper. Useful as they are, page breaks can mess up a Word document, if their location has changed due to say, multiple edits—necessitating their removal.

Most users face trouble when removing page breaks.

They may be following the correct sequence for removing the breaks, but somehow, it does not work.

Stubborn page breaks are mainly due to enabling of track changes.

Here, we will show you different ways to remove page breaks:

  • Remove page breaks individually
  • Remove page breaks through Find and Replace

Let us start.

How to create one-inch margin in Google Docs

The margin is the distance between the text in your document and the edge of the document.

Changing the margins allows you to adjust how much of the space in your document you want the text to use. 

Every document in Google Docs has a default setting for the margins. However, you can change these default settings and customize your margins. You can change the margins for the left, right, top, or bottom of your document. 

You can also decide whether you want to change the margins for the entire page or just for a few paragraphs in your document. If you want to use these margins for future documents as well, you can make the new settings default.

In this article, we will be talking about the two broad ways in which you can change the margins in your document. We will also be taking you through the steps of changing the margins for each of these methods.

Note that we will specifically be talking about how to create a 1-inch margin but the steps we provide can be used for creating margins of any length/width.

Let’s get started.

How to Delete Comments in Word

After an extensive proof-reading or editing, a Word document may contain multiple track changes and/or comments in the markup area.

Even after accepting the changes and resolving the comments, some of them may linger on in the document, popping up occasionally.

As comments are also involved with tracked changes, it is necessary to either accept or reject the changes, and stop the tracking, before deleting the comments.

Word allows you to do this individually or collectively. 

While dealing with tracked changes individually, you can also resolve the associated comment, before moving on to the next change and its comment.

However, you can also attend to all tracked changes first and then collectively remove the comments.

Therefore, we will show you how to:

  • Accept changes individually or collectively
  • Reject changes individually or collectively
  • Delete comments individually
  • Delete comments collectively

Let’s begin.

How to Delete All Tab Stops in Word

Tab stops in Word are horizontal markers for keeping your text aligned.

When you press the tab key on your keyboard, it moves the cursor to a tab stop. Tabs can be helpful when used creatively and carefully. Otherwise, tabs can mess up a document quite badly.

Word offers tab stops to help format paragraphs.

That means you can use tab stops independently in paragraphs in a document.

When you want to change the formatting of a document, you can choose to delete tab stops individually, or all at a time. We will show you both ways.

For instance, you may have inherited a document with tab stops sprinkled all over, and want to remove them to format the document to your liking.

Here, we will show you how you to:

  • Remove tab stops individually from the horizontal ruler
  • Remove tab stops individually or collectively using menus

Let’s begin.
