    With ActiveDocument
        For Each sh In .Shapes
            If sh.Type = msoTextBox Then tbxs = tbxs + 1
        Next
        xInlines = .InlineShapes.Count
        xFloaters = .Shapes.Count - tbxs
    End With
    xPrompt = "Inline images:" & vbTab & xInlines & vbCr
    xPrompt = xPrompt & "Floating shapes:" & vbTab & xFloaters & vbCr
    xPrompt = xPrompt & vbTab & "Total:" & vbTab & (xInlines + xFloaters) & vbCr
