Chapter 26. Inserting Text Boxes > Creating Text Boxes

Creating Text Boxes

Text boxes are easy to create in one of two ways. You can choose a command, or click the Text Box button on the Drawing toolbar. Either way, if no text is selected, you get a crosshair that you can use with a mouse to draw a text box of any size. The insertion point flashes at the top of the text box, and you can type the text you want inside the text box (or you can insert a picture or object). If text is selected when you choose the Text Box command or click the Text Box button, then Word automatically creates a text box which contains the selected text. You can easily edit the text or change the text box.

To see a text box on your screen, you must be in the Page Layout (or Online Layout) view. You can choose that view before you start; however, Word will choose the Page Layout view for you any time you choose the Insert Text Box command or click the Text Box button.
