Default Can't select text box

I have copied and pasted several text boxes and now I cannot grab the text
boxes to move them within the document. Is there a way to reverse this or
correct this?
I may have changed the original text box layout to "behind text" - not sure
if that would be part of the problem.

Default Can't select text box

Click the Select arrow on the Drawing toolbar. That will let you select
objects (including text boxes) that are behind the text.
