Hi,

I need to fit a text box exactly to the border of a picture in word. What are the steps I need to take to have the text box and picture border to line up exactly?

Thank you.

Hi Charles,

Thank you for the response. Can you give me the exact steps to align the borders? I found "align" underneath arrange, but I cannot find groups. Also, I am unsure what to do once I find "groups" to actually align the borders. Can you walk me through the process step by step to match the borders of the text box with the picture? Thanks.

You need to have the text box and the picture both selected and right click on one of them. Or you can put the picture inside the text box with 0 margin.

What is it you are trying to accomplish by doing this?

Hi,

I am doing the project for work and need to fit the picture to the textbox. When I hover over "grouping", which appears when I right click on the textbox, three unhighlighted options appear: group, ungroup, and regroup. However they are unhighlighted and I cannot use them. Are these the options that will autofit the textbox to the picture? How can I highlight them to use them? How do I highlight the textbox and picture at the same time as you suggest? Thank you.

For the group item to activate, more than one item must be selected.

Sorry, I had never tried this. Skip the grouping and aligning. I have tried the following.

Set the wrapping for your picture to be behind text.
Set the wrapping on the textbox to be in front of text. Set the fill for the textbox to no fill.

Move the two to be in the same position and have the same size. Once you have done this, you will be able to get to the picture only by moving the textbox so you can click on the picture.

Ordinary text, not in the textbox, can be between the two layers. You will probably want to avoid this.

Make sure that the color of the text in the textbox will contrast with your picture.

When you said textbox, I assumed that you meant a classic textbox, not some sort of text form field for people to type in. (Such a field could be inside a textbox.) That right-clicking on a textbox gives you a disabled group command tells me that we are talking about the same kind of textbox.
