In technical books or documents you often see little icons in the margin that indicate some property of the paragraph.

How would I add that in Word 2010 in such a way that it is displayed in the margin and stays anchored to the paragraph?

Here is an example from Code Complete by Steve McConnell with two such icons: KEY POINT and CODING HORROR.

You can do this by creating a floating image (with square wrapping for example) and anchor it to the paragraph (enable paragraph markers to do this). Then under wrapping options -> Advanced change the left and top positions to be relative to the paragraph. Adjust the position so it's inside the margin and it should work as expected.

Yup, anchor to paragraph is what I was looking for. – Michiel van Oosterhout Jul 5 '12 at 13:56
