Int32

Remarks

This property returns true if the specified Shape object's anchor is locked to the anchoring range. When a shape has a locked anchor, you cannot move the shape's anchor by dragging it (the anchor doesn't move as the shape is moved).

A Shape object is anchored to a range of text, but you can position it anywhere on the page. The shape is anchored to the beginning of the first paragraph that contains the anchoring range. A shape will always remain on the same page as its anchor.
