Ok, so I have watched dozens of videos, even joined Lynda and I am still stumped! I am a PS CS6 user for many years, so I am familiar with the adobe line of software.
However, I am trying to import a 60 page word document, tried .doc and .docx versions, with the same result - all of the pictures and graphics are Anchored and I am not able to:
1. Move graphics independently of text.
2. I cannot wrap text around an image, even playing with the wrap text box, nothing changed. No matter what I do with the images, the text starts at the bottom of the image and stays there.
3. I tried deleting a picture, and re-placing it within the text frame, and it continued to be locked.
Help! I don't know why this is happening,
Microsoft Word anchors all the images into a paragraph of text.
Therefore - when you import a Word file into InDesign the image is anchored.
This script will copy all the items to a new layer - unanchoring them - http://indisnip.wordpress.com/2010/09/16/copy-all-anchoredinline-objects-to-a-new-layer/
How to use scripts
With Anchored Objects the Text Wrap doesn't work as expected (I see it as a flaw others see it as a "feature").
When you save it as a Docx from Word it's basically a complex ZIP file.
Change the extension to .ZIP in the DOCX file and then extract all the content.
You can the access the images within the ZIP file (that was originally the doc file).
I suggest you use FIle>Place to replace all the images in the layout.
