Graphics in Word 2016
By default, Word makes objects snap (jump) to an underlying grid laid across the document. If you drag an object, such as a shape, you'll notice that it moves in little jerks rather than smoothly. This is because of the grid - but because the grid is usually invisible, it's not obvious.
If you use large pictures in a document, its file size increases rapidly. You can reduce this problem by telling Word to compress the pictures.
Use the AutoCaption feature if you want to add captions to all items of a particular type automatically.
A callout is a type of text box that also includes a line for pointing to any location on the document. A callout is helpful when you need to identify and to explain parts of a picture.
Including a large number of in-line pictures in your documents slows down Word's performance. You can improve performance by replacing actual images with picture placeholders.
There is no need to use additional image editing software to create high-quality pictures for your document. Instead, you can use Microsoft Word picture editing tools to correct and improve your photos.
Although the Find and Replace dialog box does not directly support replacing text with pictures or objects, you can efficiently perform this action using the Clipboard and the ^c wildcard.
