  • Clear the option to "Resize shape to fit text" in the Shape Options for the text box. (If you are using Word 2013, you'll find this option in the Format Shape task pane.)

    More importantly, note that you don't need to insert a text box first, before adding an object. You can add the object directly in the document and set Text Wrapping as you prefer.

  • Hi,

    Based on my understanding, after you have inserted an object, the size of the textbox on your document changed. I have made a test, after inserting a bitmap image, my vertical textbox size didn’t change. Did I miss something? Since I can’t reproduce this issue, could you please illustrate the detailed steps so it could be reappear?

    Best Regards
