In the middle of a rather large document I have, at some time, inserted a photo that has become "anchored" and resists any attempt to delete it or, better yet, remove the anchor.

If I simply delete the photo I'm left with a line frame that I can't do anything with and just sits there looking back at me.

Wha hoppen ????

Thanks,

Select the frame, not just the photo and cut. Paste where you want it and then right click to select what kind of anchor you want. Often 'as character' is the best choice.

I can get rid of the picture but the frame stays there and everything sort of shifts around it.

See https://picasaweb.google.com/114087066216252719710/Courtland#5737671805611101058

Thanks for the help,

Thanks all, as usual it was "operator error".

I was using the wrong method of selecting the frame.
