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 (Figure 355), set the anchor to To character or To paragraph.


  1. Under Position, choose suitable horizontal and vertical references to the page.
