How to Bring Text Forward in a Word Processing Document

Updated July 20, 2017

In Microsoft Office Word, when working with both photos and text, you may lose text behind inserted pictures. It then becomes necessary to move the text to the front of the document, allowing the text to be viewed in front of the pictures or WordArt. Doing this allows you to correctly format your Word document.

Open your Start menu. Click "Microsoft Office." Open "Microsoft Office Word."

Click "File" and then "Open." Select the Word document you are working with and click "Open."

Highlight the text you wish to move forward. Click "Page Layout." Click "Bring to front." This will bring your highlighted text to the front of the document, allowing it to be seen in front of other text, pictures and WordArt.
