    Wrap the text around the picture (PowerPoint 2003)

    I was trying to insert a picture on my Power Point slide and would like to wrap the text around the picture as I routinely do in Word. I canít figure out how to do this.

    I'm afraid that's because you cannot do this in any version of PowerPoint (except by manually adjusting text in text boxes.)

    Good Evening

    As John quite rightly points out you cannot do this in PowerPoint but you can do it in Word Textboxes in PowerPoint do not offer wrapping properties like word

    To do this in PowerPoint, start a new document in Word. Insert your graphic and type your text as you want it to appear in PowerPoint. Also set your wrapping properties as you want it to appear. Highlight the paragraph(s) and then copy it. In PowerPoint do a Paste Special (From the Edit menu) as a Word Object.

    Hope that helps, if not post back and I will try something else

    Cheers
