Anchoring pictures to a page

The problem

A picture (graphic) anchored “to page” in a subdocument is not displayed in the master document although it always appears correctly in the subdocument.

Because the master document reorganizes the page flow, page numbers, and cross-references when it collates all the subdocuments together, the absolute reference to a page X in a subdocument is lost in the master document. The picture loses its anchor reference and simply disappears.

The solution

To avoid this problem but keep pictures positioned precisely on a particular page, anchor the pictures as follows:

  1. Right-click on the picture and choose Picture from the pop-up menu.
  2. On the Type tab of the Picture dialog box, set the anchor to To character or To paragraph.
  3. Under Position, choose suitable horizontal and vertical references to the page.
