I've created a layout in Pages which includes a "framed" picture. When I position it to the left where I want it located the "frame" disappears and only the rectangular picture shape remains. How do I keep the framed picture?

IWork/Pages, Mac OS X (10.6.8)

    Can you try that again and describe it better so we can follow along?

    I've set up a page that includes several pictures for a yearbook. I have 6 pictures across and 5 rows. I'm using one of the frame styles. Pictures 2-6 in the row show the frame, but the first picture just shows the rectangular shape when I have it positioned where I want it. If I click on it and use the right arrow key to move it to the right 3 clicks, it then shows the desired frame shape. But, if I move it from that position back to the left, the first left arrow click it turns back into a rectangle. The same thing is occuring on each of the rows.

    That particular document could be corrupt. Try opening a new doc and Pasting your content into it and see how the new doc behaves.

    What version of Pages are you using?


    Any particular template? Word Processing or Layout mode?


    Which frame are you using?


    Are the images floating or inline in the text?


    I have Pages '09 v 4.0 and used the picture frame/photo corners frama and am not getting the problem.

    I'm not on the same computer right now so not certain of the version, but the frame I was using was the one in the middle of the 3rd row. I tried several different frames, the one with the push pin, photo corners, etc. and the others all seemed to work that I tried, but they weren't the ones I wanted. I'm using page layout mode using a row of pictures, followed by a row of names, with this repeating to fill the page.

    The Torn Paper frame?


    I have set up a 6 x 5 grid and done what you said but it doesn't change for me.


    btw I would not have done it this way.


    It is much more efficient and accurate to set this up as inline styled Images in a Word Processing document, like the one I recently did for another poster:
