Default Deleting text boxes & finding text box toolbar in Word 2003...

Suzanne, i'm having trouble deleting text boxs in Word 2003. Seems to me
they ought to vanish when i place cursor in text box & press delete, but it
doesn't seem to happen. Also, the little text box toolbar sometimes appear,
sometimes doesn't. Any solutions for this...?

All the best!

alex

Default Deleting text boxes & finding text box toolbar in Word 2003...

For Word 2007, click on the border of the text box so that just it is
selected (without it being enclosed in a dotted outline) and then press
delete (or in Word 2003, the border will be surrounded by a band of dots
rather than a hashed band)

If the textbox toolbar does not appear, select Toolbars from the View menu
and then check the Text Box item.

Hope this helps.
