The example below demonstrates how to wrap text around a shape.

Wrap text around a rectangle

Document document = wordProcessor.Document;
document.LoadDocument("FirstLook.docx");
// Set the measurement unit to inches.
document.Unit = DevExpress.Office.DocumentUnit.Inch;

// Create a rectangle with a folded corner.
Shape rectangle = document.Shapes.InsertShape(document.CreatePosition(100), ShapeGeometryPreset.FoldedCorner);
// Center the rectangle on the page.
rectangle.RelativeHorizontalPosition = ShapeRelativeHorizontalPosition.Page;
rectangle.HorizontalAlignment = ShapeHorizontalAlignment.Center;
rectangle.RelativeVerticalPosition = ShapeRelativeVerticalPosition.Page;
rectangle.VerticalAlignment = ShapeVerticalAlignment.Center;

// Wrap text around the rectangle.
rectangle.TextWrapping = TextWrappingType.Square;

// Set the distance between the rectangle and text.
rectangle.MarginTop = 0.1f;
rectangle.MarginBottom = 0.1f;
rectangle.MarginLeft = 0.2f;
rectangle.MarginRight = 0.2f;
