This sounds like you have a frame around the picture or text(it can be used
with both). The frame is anchored to a particular paragraph and can be

The black line means that the graphic was inserted without a frame
surrounding it. You can insert a frame around the art by clicking the art,
going to insert, and then choosing the frame option.

Once you have the frame in you should be able to reposition the art much
easier (tho I find myself cussing a lot at times, anyone got some good tips
for using frames?)

It seems that if you want to be able to move the pictures around, you need
to be using the frame command on the insert menu.
