Don’t you hate it when you make a new picture box and it forces text on the page to run around it? If you prefer to have your new picture boxes have no runaround assigned to them, just change the box tool preference.
Double-click a box tool to open preferences for it and other box tools.
Click the Modify button, then click the Runaround tab and change the Type from Item to None.
If you do this with no documents open, the change will affect all new documents. If you do this with a document open, it affects only that document.
