Text wrap can be used within Microsoft Publisher 2007 to wrap surrounding text in various manners. Text can be wrapped around an object in various ways by use of the "Text Wrapping" button.

Things You'll Need

  • Microsoft Publisher 2007
  • Start Microsoft Publisher 2007 and open an existing document that contains an image or other object that you would like to wrap text around.

  • Click to select the image or object that you want to wrap text around. The object will be surrounded with white sizing handles.

  • Select the "Text Wrapping" button from the Picture toolbar. The options for text wrapping will drop-down below the button.

  • Choose "Square" text wrapping to wrap text around an invisible frame surrounding the image. Click the "Tight" selection to wrap the text around the edges of the selected object. The "Through" selection can be selected to put the text over the object. "Top and Bottom" can be chosen to wrap text around the top and the bottom of the object without wrapping text on either side of the object. Once selected, these options will be applied to the selected image or object.
