Default Text jumping around in tables when I add graphic


I have three columns in table: column 1 = text, column 2 = gap, column 3 = photo, all centred vertically and horizontally. I have an arrow set in front of text straddling all three columns. It pushes the text in the first column to the top of the cell and I cannot work out how to make it go back to centred vertically.

Very strange; I just tried to recreate your problem, and sure enough! The same thing happened. Bizarre.

One work-around is to increase the paragraph spacing above the text to align it in the center of the cell (Format/Paragraph/Space before).

thanks for the workaround. I never thought of the simple...but its frustrating that it happens at all.

Anyone have a solution for this? I have similar issues with other docs.
