Because the formula belongs to an embedded object, it cannot set text wrapping like a picture or clip art so that it can move freely through the Word2010 document. However, the user can place the formula in a text box to indirectly set its text wrapping style, as described in the following steps:
In step 1th, open the Word2010 document window and switch to the Insert Ribbon. Click the text Box button in the Text group, and select the Draw text Box command in the Open Text box panel, as shown in Figure 2011072801.

Step 2nd, drag the left mouse button in the Word2010 document to draw a text box, and then click the formula control handle to select the formula. Click the cut and Paste commands to move the formula to the text box, respectively, in the Clipboard group in the start Ribbon. Resize the text box to match the size of the formula, as shown in Figure 2011072802.

Step 6th, open the Format Shape dialog box and switch to the Line Color tab. Select the Wireless Bar Radio box and click the Close button to suppress the border of the text box so that the text box and the formula are integrated visually, as shown in Figure 2011072806.
