I have the following word coument, in which I would like to fix the position of the two figures on the right top of the page. Thus I inserted a text box where I want to put the two figures inside. Now my problem is, how can I fix the position of the textbox on the top position of the right column, and make it of width 100% relative to the right column? I didn't find the setting for 100% width relative to "right column" thing. enter image description here

  • Is your issue that the margin inside the text box makes it so that the pasted figures don't fill the page margins when you make the text box match the page margins? – fixer1234 Oct 27 '14 at 6:23
  • No. I want to make the textbox fit in the right column only (width). I couldn't do it. – Tyler 十三将士归玉门 Oct 29 '14 at 5:27
  • You should be able to use the drag points (corners and middle of sides) to position and size the text box however you want. What type of problem do you experience when you try to do that? – fixer1234 Oct 29 '14 at 6:02
  • Yes I can drag to do that. But I think there may be a standard and more precise way to do that. Like in "Position"->"layout" or somewhere else. – Tyler 十三将士归玉门 Oct 29 '14 at 6:06
  • I usually find that the easiest way to do it is to position it by hand and then check those layout settings to fine-tune it. It saves all of the mental gymnastics of calculating what all of the settings should be. Once it is close, it is easy to see how any settings need to be tweaked. – fixer1234 Oct 29 '14 at 6:42
