Text Following a Graphic Word Wraps Too Early

PSS ID Number: Q51560 Article last modified on 03-07-1997

====================================================================== 4.00 MACINTOSH kbgraphic

The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Word for the Macintosh, version 4.0


If a graphic that was copied from a drawing program, such as MacDraw or SuperPaint, contains text, the text in Microsoft Word that follows the graphic may wrap as much as 1 inch before the end of the line when printed. The screen display usually does not indicate a problem.

For example, if the graphic contains bold Helvetica and Helvetica is the font for the Normal style, the text that follows the graphic (if it is in the Normal style) will not wrap properly when printed; instead, it will wrap too soon.

The important connection is that the text within the graphic is bold and is the same font as the font for the Normal style in the Word document.

One workaround is to format any character between the graphic and the text (such as a space or paragraph character) as bold.

Microsoft is researching this problem and will post new information here as it becomes available.
