Anchoring pictures to a page
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.
To avoid this problem but keep pictures positioned precisely on a particular page, anchor the pictures as follows:
- Right-click on the picture and choose Picture from the pop-up menu.
- On the Type tab of the Picture dialog box, set the anchor to To character or To paragraph.
- Under Position, choose suitable horizontal and vertical references to the page.
