Locking Images on MS Word Doc

  MatraSimca 23:58 24 Apr 2018

I’m looking for a way to lock down various different header and footer images to an MS Word Document. I find that when I send the document to others to read their systems whether they use a Mac or a PC tends to push these headers and footer images downwards where they overlap each other on subsequent pages and then messes up my paragraph structure.

If I save the Word Doc into a PDF format then automatic borders in the PDF program do the same things and delete parts of these images. Is there a PDF program that won’t do this or a way to lock down these images? I want the document to look the same for whomever views it on whichever system they use. Thank you.

I've just Google'd "anchor image and caption ms word" and got these hits - see here - click here, something there will help. Otherewise modify the search term to be more accurate for your needs

well I don't want to attach the images to any text, I want to make it part of the document like its a locked-in background header and footer image. I'm doing this with a Mac and the Anchor option isn't there under the Format Picture submenu, so any other suggestions?
