Clip Art & Tab Key TAB: A key that when struck causes the cursor to move to a preset position, as in indenting paragraphs. When you click on the picture your picture tool bar should pop up. You can always right click on your picture for more options. You must remember to click “text doggie” then choose, “tight”, “behind text”, or “in front of text” from the picture toolbar or you won’t be able to move the picture after inserting it. Using “Behind Text” means the picture will not disrupt the writing.
