Controlling Text Placement and Formatting with Text Boxes and AutoShapes

When you use Word, you might occasionally find that you need control over your text layout beyond setting margins, formatting paragraphs, and creating columns. At those times, you might benefit from entering your information into shapes that can contain text, such as AutoShapes that can serve as text containers or text boxes. Text boxes are free-floating objects, independent of the regular document, that you can use to enclose information. You can then format these objects in the same ways you format drawings, by using the Drawing toolbar.

For more information about working with AutoShapes and the Drawing toolbar, see Chapter 12, “Enlivening Documents with Drawings and AutoShapes.”
