Default reliable graphics placement

I've been asked to convert one of my documents into Word, and I'm having trouble :-{ The challenge I ran into this morning is, how to place small graphics (toolbar buttons, usually) in the left margin. That's easier to see than to imagine, so here's a detail screenshot, plus a link to a .pdf showing a full page.





Tips on the best way to achieve this will be welcome! I thought I'd cracked it, but when I applied exactly the same settings to another same-size image the results were distressingly different.



Thanks in advance.

Hi eNGiNe,

That should be easy enough. After initially inserting the icons, change their formatting to 'Square' and set their positioning to wherever you want them (eg 0.5in from the page border and whatever height below the top of the anchor paragraph you desire)

Thanks, Paul - sounds rather tedious for a document with a hundred or so of these icons :-{ I've created a style with tabs and a hanging indent, so I can insert the icon and then press Tab before writing the text.

Warn me if this is likely to come back and bite me in the leg!

Hi eNGiNe,

Using a first-line setting with a negative indent should allow you to safely insert the icon, follwed by a tab before the text starts. If that's what your Style does (and your description suggests it), it should be OK. From the image attached to your initial post, I got the impression that the icon sat lower than the first line. AFAIK the workaround you're using won't do that, but that might be a small price to pay.

Yes, I had the icons aligned just as I wanted before the move to Word ... but I'll abandon that in favour of a relatively simple approach with hanging indents.
