I can only guess you haven't seen what happens when you move this file to another PC or change your default printer. It pretty much destroys your layout.
But let's say you are going to keep at it. Here's a tip on getting it selected -> http://word.mvps.org/faqs/drwgrphcs/selectbehindtext.htm
Good luck and my advice is to get some other app that is about layout since this is not what Word is about.
I am making bordered signs (2 to a portrait ltr sized page).
When I add a graphic, it hides the border and makes it difficult to place exactly where it should be.
I then move it to be 'behind text' and my text and border appear again and I can see that the graphic placement needs minor adjustments.
However, I am unable to find the handles to move it into the desired position. Sometimes while clicking away, the handles appear, but mostly I loose a lot of time trying to find them.
Is there a way to have the handles visible, so that the graphic can be moved more efficiently to line up with a border, for instance?
Have looked in Word 2007 Manual, but can't find an answer to my dilemma.
