mso-position-horizontal & mso-position-horizontal-relative RRS feed

  • Question

  • For v:shape style='...' how do mso-position-horizontal & mso-position-horizontal-relative set the left edge of a text box (and same question for the vertical ones). They appear to be very different ways of setting the edge.

    Also if neither is set, it looks like the margin-left:123.45pt is measured from the page margin, but not from the paragraph margin (if the left margin is set to a non zero value) - yet if measured from text shouldn't it go from the paragraph margin?

    thanks - dave

  • Hi Dave,

    Actually VML is not part of the Open Specifications documentation set which is the subject of these forums.   You might try posting to the Office Developer forums.

  • Alex;

    I unmarked this as the answer because it does not answer the question and this is the most appropiate forum for the question as it is listed in the OpenXML documentation.

    I understand that Microsoft will not provide further documentation on these attributes (you have provided some in the OpenXML docx) but I want to leave this open in case a non-Microsoft person has more info.

    thanks - dave
