Hi,

I'm trying to work out the page relative locations of shapes on a page. I'm finding that if I do something like:

shape.select();
top = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.Selection.Information[WdInformation.wdVerticalPositionRelativeToPage];
left = Globals.ThisAddIn.Application.Selection.Information[WdInformation.wdHorizontalPositionRelativeToPage];

then I'm getting the location of the associated anchor and not the shape itself.

Is this to be expected?

Many thanks

Martin

Your code should be returning the top & left coordinates of the shape, not its anchor. Of course, it's entirely possible they have the same coordinates.
