Another is to place the graphic and the accompanying text in a two column, one row table, each column sized appropriately for the text and graphic. Getting the spacing right can take a few minutes, but it works better for me. Using anchors invariably results in a deterioration of my pristine vocabulary.

A solution to this issue is to use anchors instead of hard returns. The Advanced Layout feature in the Format Picture menu can be used to lock the anchor and move the picture along with the associated paragraph. The anchor will be visible when the picture option selected is other than In Line With Text, and the Show/Hide paragraph marks feature is enabled. The object will be moored to the paragraph, so the picture will remain on the same page as the paragraph. If the picture/paragraph pair is scrolled to the bottom of the page and pass the footer (as a result of the insertion of text/pictures preceding the anchored object), they will be automatically moved to the proceeding page.

In one of the messages in the "Applying on-line" thread someone(sorry, don't remember who) stated that hard returns in a Word doc are a Bad Thing. Within a paragraph, they most certainly are. But I find myself using them to place figures
because Word allows figures to run off the bottom of the page. Adding lines to push them to the next page is an ugly solution to the problem that is a pain in the neck to update as the document evolves. Is there an, ahem, *professional* way to keep
figures from dripping off the bottoms of pages?
