graphics changes position when upgrading from word 2007 to 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Existing Word 2007 documents are opened in compatibility mode in Word 2013.

    Storing or converting it to the 2013 format moves an image to a strange position.

    The image that is moved is embedded in a table that is part of a Position Frame.

    Obviously the ckeckbox of the "layout in table cell" is engaged by the conversion process.

    Afterwards this Option cannot be unchecked in the Word 2013.

    Is there a solution to preserve all the 2007/2010 documents when converting to 2013??

    The customer wants to use the old document!! What's the solution for that?

  • The easiest solution, of course, is not to convert the file at all. You can leave it in Word 2007 compatibility mode.
