Tight Wrap

The Tight wrapping style is best used for irregularly shaped objects, for example a star. Selecting Tight makes the text hug the shape of the object, wrapping closely to all the edges. If there is a transparent border around the object, the text will not overlay the transparent area. You can edit the wrapping boundaries to set how close the text should be to the boundary.

Square Wrap

The Square wrapping style wraps text in a square around the object, no matter what the object shape is. You can edit the wrapping boundaries to set how large of a square the text should leave.

Apply Wrapping Style

You apply wrapping styles to objects by clicking on the image to select it. The "Text Wrapping" drop-down menu is located in the "Arrange" group on the "Format" tab under "Picture Tools." Select the wrapping style that you want to apply to your object.

Set Wrapping Boundaries
