WD97: Paragraph Borders Displayed Erratically with Objects

Article ID: 169532

Article Last Modified on 1/19/2007



APPLIES TO

  • Microsoft Word 97 Standard Edition



This article was previously published under Q169532

SYMPTOMS

If your document contains floating objects, paragraph borders or shading may not be displayed or printed the way you expect.

Depending on the amount of text in the paragraph and where the floating object is placed, paragraph borders or shading may not be displayed or printed to the right of the object. For example, if a line of text in the paragraph fails to extend to the right of the object, a border (or shading) will not be displayed or printed to the right of the object for that line.

CAUSE

This problem occurs when the following conditions are true:

  • The floating object has a wrapping style applied to it.


-and-

  • The floating object is placed over a paragraph that is formatted with borders or shading.


WORKAROUND

To display the border correctly, use the following steps:

  1. Place the insertion point at the end of the line of text that does not extend past the floating object.
  2. Press the TAB key until the insertion point moves to the right of the object. (The insertion point may not move to the right of the object if the object is close to the right margin or indent.)

NOTE: Converting the object to a framed object will not correct the problem.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article.
