I have image text wrap margins working fine in my robohelp 9 project. When I publish to Word 2010 (docx) the margin becomes set to "0". The Word template image default is set to "square" text wrap with right, left margin set to .13" (what i want). What can i do to retain text wrap margin when publishing to Word?
Correction: Actually, I see that the word template insert image default is set to "in line with text". How can i set the word template insert image default to "square" text wrap with right margin set to .13"
Maybe a better way to ask my question is like this: In a robohelp 9 topic that has an image text wrap, how do i retain the image margin properties when publishing to Word 2010.
Found the picture insert default in Word 2010 Options > Advanced as you described. Thank you. Word help is sooo poor, I appreciate your help.
However, there is still a problem. After making the change, I verified that when i insert a "picture" into my Word template, it inserts the picture as "square" format with default .13" right, left margin. When I publish to Word as described previously, a robohelp "text wrap" image has a "square" text wrap image, but the margins are set to "0". As i noted previously, the robohelp text wrap margins are set to ".13". So i still have the problem where word is not retaining the robohelp margin setting nor using the Word default setting.
Can you provide a solution? Is it just my project or is this an issue with robohelp? It seems to me that text wrap would be a commonly used function.
I have looked around RoboHelp 9 and Word 2010 and also gone back to RoboHelp 7 and Word 2003. I have tried mapping to Word and using the project CSS.
The results are always the same, no margin as you have found. Also I cannot find a way of setting default margins in either version of Word.
For a definitive answer on whether there is a Word solution, I would be heading off to http://windowssecrets.com/forums/
Failing that one option might be to amend the image so that it has a border the same colour as the background of your pages. That would give the appearance of a margin. It does of course mean if you ever change the background colour you will have a bit of image reworking so not ideal.
You should also submit a bug report. Please follow this link.

for a square text wrap in word 2010, the default margin is 0.13" which works fine for me. however, as indicated in this post, an inserted picture is re-set to 0.0" in the published document, so robohelp does not keep the margin setting in the topic nor does it use the default setting in word template. I guess your workaround of adding a border to the image is an option. I submitted a bug report using your link. I guess i'll leave this issue open.
