    Trying to locate image up against top and right margins

    I have a template that has an image that has to be positioned hard up in the top and right hand margins.

    I was having trouble trying to do this but I have since found the answer (the minute I pressed the "Save" button). I set my Relative position to -580% and 0% and it works fine.

    But.... then I tried these settings on the image in another version of the document (i.e. with the same margin settings) and I lose my image completely.

    Why did it work on one and not the other?

    I am also adding another thread requesting help with the coding of this. My challenge is that if I can't get it to work 'manually', how can I write code for it?

    Niki,

    You leave out some relevant information.

    Does the image go on a single page, the first page, all pages?
    Is there a Header involved and if so is the image in the header or in the page body?
    What size is the image H/W?

    It all depends on what the image is relative to. If you specify the image positioning relative to the page instead of its anchor then you will get a much more predictable positioning.

    Thank you gentlemen. I think I've cracked it. (Sometimes I run around like crazy in circles and then when I stop, go away and think of something else it all becomes clear).

    I have set up the absolute measurements against the right margin and page. Duh. Andrew's comment about the anchor made me uncheck "Move object with text", and that gave me a few more options.

    Thanks again
