How do I stop text in text boxes affecting text in other text box



  • 1. file u tried to open was not found.It may be missing.-->string/ mF
    I read im numerous reliable web sites the following tip: to make a shortcut so that Word automatically opens the last file used one should create a shortcut with the following: string/ mFile1 So I created --> "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\OFFICE11\WINWORD.EXE" string/ mFile1 However, when I use the shortcut for Word 2003I get an error message that says, "The file you tried to open was not found. It may be missing....." You click on OK and the file in question load up anyway, disregarding the obviously false message since thew file was found and loaded. So how do I avoid getting this nagging pop up window and have the short cut simply do what it is supposed to do? Thank you Mich

Hi Historical Ruth,

From the Word Help file-

. Switch to print layout view.

. Select the text box that you want the text to stop flowing from. To do
this, move the pointer over the border of the object until the pointer
becomes a four-headed arrow, and then click the border.

. On the Text Box toolbar, click Break Forward Link

2.inserting text box - text does not move from under text box

When inserting a text box the underlying text does NOT move out of the way?
In older WORD program the text would move. 

3.Typing in one form's text box affects all others

I downloaded an application form and noticed that all of the text boxes on 
the final page are somehow connected to a title text box on the first page -- 
that title text appears in the subsequent boxes, and changing the text in one 
box changes the text in all others. This is supposed to be a form where users 
can fill in their own information in the boxes on the final page, different 
text in each box. Does anyone know how to fix this, to break this connection 
between the text boxes without creating a whole new form? (No, there doesn't 
seem to be "linked text" in the usual sense.) I'm using Microsoft Word 2002.
