Microsoft word -text box font changes

By saharanz ·
I have mde a diagram in word using autoshapes and textboxes and have grouped it all together. In order put a caption on this diagram I need to cut it and paste special as a picture so that I can format teh layout inline with text. When I do this the text in the text boxes changes font and size. It iss driving me nuts. Is there any way around this?

Microsoft word -text box font changes

Have you thought about using a table? Create a one column table with two rows. Then paste your autoshapes and textboxes into one cell and the caption into another cell. You can then change the caption cell's font independently of the first cell. Furthermore, you can then manipulate the table's and the individual cells' properties to get it to align and wrap however you want.

Float the diagram

When I'm creating diagrams like the one you describe, I also group everything. Then I choose to Format the grouped object, select the Layout tab, make sure In Front of Text is selected as the wrapping style, press [Enter] several times to put blank paragraphs behind the grouped object, and then insert the caption below the object in a new paragraph.

Good luck!
