Glossing or Annotating Text in Word 2007 / 2010 / 2013 / 2016

Images can be inserted, sized, positioned, set to appear in front of text and to be tied to an anchor attached to a line, just like a text box.

Use comments for annotations that will not be visible when printed. Select text to be commented in your document; Review / New Comment. Comments can be a good way to give feedback to students when correcting their Word document projects.
