To transfer your picture—or any other picture, such as a listing—into a Microsoft Word document:

I've inserted a picture into my document, but it's floating off the page and getting cut off. How do I put it on the page where I want it?
When a picture is inserted into your Word document, its default placement is in line with your text. That is, Word inserts the picture at your cursor location. If you want to reposition your picture precisely, follow these steps:
   1. Select the picture.
   2. On the Format menu, click Picture, and then click the Layout tab.
   3. Click the Advanced button.
   4. On the Text Wrapping tab, click the Top and bottom wrapping style or another style of your choice.
   5. If you want to specify the picture's distance from text, specify the distance in the Top, Bottom, Left, and Right boxes. Some elements on the tab may be dimmed, depending on the selections you make.
   6. Click the Picture Position tab to select the picture's horizontal and vertical placement, as well as other options. Again, some elements on the tab may be dimmed, depending on your selections.
   7. To close the Advanced Layout dialog box and save your selections, click OK.
   8. To close the Format Picture dialog box and reposition your picture, click OK.

How do I insert the "®" (registered trademark) after the word "Realtor"?
Microsoft Word offers an array of symbols beyond those found on your keyboard, including the ®. For some symbols, it also offers a second (and faster) way to access them. For the ® symbol, for example, hitting the Ctrl-Alt-R keys simultaneously on a PC will create the symbol, as will option-R on a Macintosh. To use other symbols, first click on the spot within the document where you want the symbol to go. Then:
Go to "Insert" on the top menu and click on "Symbol"
Select a symbol from the grid that comes up
Microsoft Word will then insert it into your document

   6. In the Envelopes and Labels dialog box, do one of the following:
