Text wrapping difficulity
I am attempting to wrap text around a graphic, an oval. On the "outside" of
the oval is a picture that ends on the ovals left hand side. I want the text
to follow the "inside" (or right hand side) of the oval. I have edited the
text boxes' wrap points, that did nothing. I have grouped the three objects
(picture, graphic & text box) and brought the graphic to the front. That
didn't work. The text always runs through (on top of) the graphic and the
picture, or goes away completely.
Is there a solution? Thanks.
Text will never wrap inside the oval....Wrapping Text to next cell?
Is it possible to get text that overfills a cell to wrap to the nex
cell below it?

...Wrap to Window
Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard)
In draft view, I'd like the text to wrap to the window size rather than the document's margins. Is this feature part of Word for Mac? It's easily done in the PC version.

I am wanting to know if there is a way to reset the default word wrap values
in publisher. I have everything else set so that I don't have to open the
'format text box' box every time to set this. I am writing newsletters and

I go FORMAT, click CELLS, click NUMBER, click TEXT, click WRAP TEXT as
I usually do but for some reason it does not wrap.
Anyone have a clue?
Maybe I need to turn the machine off and let it recharge...

Format>Cells>Alignment tab. Wrap text is on this Tab.
Checkmark it a couple of times to set and reset it.
Then make sure the row is formatted to "Autofit".
If you are dealing with "merged" cells, this presents a whole 'nother problem
as autofit does not work with merged cells unless you use code.

One of the problems I've run into since I've been using v2003 is that
after a while, data in a cell stops wrapping even when text wrap is
on. At that point, I have to manually go in an add the line breaks.
This seems to happen to cells with a lot of information in them.
Was wondering why this was the case. In XL2K, we had the 255
character limit, of course, but in 2003 we can enter so much more
information. But then the word wrap problem begins.
Is there a way around this problem?
Yes, you need to add Alt-Enters every 100 characters or so.

...Wrap text function does not work on all cells
My wrap text function does not work in all cells. The
issue is this:
- It will wrap text for about 20 lines then the last line
of the cell will not wrap.
Cannot figure out what causes the sudden reason that the
wrap text function will not continue working in the cell.
Try adding some alt-enters to your text to force new lines within the cell.
You can usually see more of the contents that way.

When I have a large group of text in a cell sometimes the
text towards the end will not wrap. This occures even if I
increase the row height.
Wrap text is checked in Format Cells.
How do i correct this?
I bet that this cell has a lot of characters in it. Sometimes if you add a few
alt-enters (line breaks within the cell), xl will act nicer.

I believe you'll need a macro to accomplish this, but I wouldn't recommend
it, because sometimes you are opening other people's workbooks where the
text wrapping is already set correctly. If they have not protected their
worksheet, you'll just make a mess of it every time you try to open it.
When you open Excel, you can just turn this on right away by clicking the
