Active Picture not working right in Microsoft Word

Creator

Everytime I doubleclick on an embedded LMS Test.Lab Active Picture  in Microsoft Word, it comes up in a separate display, instead of staying embedded in the document.  This does not happen in Powerpoint where the active picture behaves normal. See picture below.  It seemed to just start happening out of the blue.

I am using Office 2013 and LMS Test.Lab 16A if that matters.

This is due to a change in the default manner in how Microsoft Word 2013 embeds objects.

 

To stop the active picture from "popping out/going to a separate display" do the following:

  1. Click on the active picture once to select it
  2. In the “Page Layout” tab, select “Wrap Text -> Top and Bottom” (picture below)

Now when doubleclicking on the picture, it will not go into another window.
