    Dragging Pictures (2000)

    Is there a way to drag pictures from one location in a document to another location in the same document?

    Yes, but there are differences depending on whether the picture is inline or not. If it is inline, it behaves like an oversized character; you can drag it to any place within existing text, not to places where there is no text. If the picture is floating above the text, you can drag it anywhere on the page.
    What is the problem you're having?

    The easiest way to drag picture around in a document is to apply wrapping to the picture.
    Right click on your toolbars, and activate the picture toolbar
    Select the picture, and click on the Text Wrapping toolbar button.
    Choose Tight or Square
    Now you can drag the picture freely to any location in the document, and text simply wraps around it accordingly!
    Regards,
