More on Kevin Ryan's levitating graphics problem:
" Keith's suggestion to try moving such graphics to the end of the line did
not show an improvement, but led me to observe something else really strange
about this problem. It is paragraph specific. If I drag/drop/copy the high
graphic within the same paragraph, it remains a high graphic. If I move it
to another paragraph, it displays correctly! If I then move it back to the
offending paragraph, it becomes high again! There is no observable
difference between the paragraph style settings of any of these good and bad

"It is the first paragraph on the page that has the problem. If I place the
cursor before the first sentence of an affected paragraph and press Return,
that paragraph becomes the second paragraph on the page and the graphic
de-levitates to its normal vertical position."
I'm guessing, but I'd double-check to see whether the raised graphic in the
first paragraph has been made into a superscript. Making a character (or
graphic in this case) into a superscript both reduces the size and raises it
above the text base line. (Subscripting it reduces it and lowers it below
the text baseline.) What you are doing requires that the graphics be reduced
to fit into the text line, but be aligned with the row of text. If there are
a lot of them, I still think creating a character style that contains the
font placement adjustment is the way to go. Then when you switch to the
other doc format, you adjust that character style's settings, and it should
adjust all of the affected items in the document.
