Using Text Boxes

Normally, when you work in Word, your text adjusts up, down, or sideways when you make other editing changes. But sometimes you want something—text, a graphic, a table, or some other document element—to stay put, no matter what.

Perhaps you want to include sidebar or pullquote text in your document and make sure that the other text flows around it (see Figure 16.9). Or, perhaps you want to create copy that flows between one location and the next—as you would if you were producing a newsletter with a story that “jumped” from one page to another. You might want an address block on the back cover or a form that recipients could return. These are some of the many valuable uses for Word's text box feature.
