Placing text under figure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I had a few pages with two images per page with a description under each image.  I altered the text, deleting quite a bit of it.  Instead of moving the text up from the next page, it pushes it forward.  now there is room for 4-5 lines of text under the bottom image but I cannot move the text up.  If I hit the back space to go onto the previous page, it deletes the image instead.  

    I have tried turning on and off the anchor, different text wrapping options, changing the size of the image....no matter what there is a huge space under the image and the text will not move onto the previous page to be under the image.

  • The problem may be due to the next paragraph having the 'keep together' or 'page break before' attribute applied. See under Format|Paragraph|Line and Page Breaks (Word 2003 & earlier) or Home|Paragraph|Line and Page Breaks (Word 2007 & later).

    That link refers to placing pictures behind text, not the placing text below the picture. Quite a different concept and incapable of resolving the issue at hand.
