Handling images

When inserting static images in your merge template, the text wrapping style must be set to Inline with text.

To do this, click on your image and select In line from the image options pop-up (see the blue arrow in the screenshot below)

Alternatively, click on your image, and then click on Image options > Text Wrapping > Inline with text (see the red arrows in the screenshot below).

WARNING: If any other text wrapping style is selected, your image may change position or may not appear at all in your merged content.

Organize content in table

In situations where positioning images in-line with paragraph text is not desirable (e.g., if you need to reposition an image relative to text), a work-around is to insert the in-line image within a table (see the screenshot below).

In the example below, the following formatting has been applied:

The formatting above enables the positions of the image and the text to be changed relative to each other, without adjusting the image's text wrapping style.
