I have a document that I use as a template that has a text box in it.  The 
text box has always shown up both on screen and when I print it.  Today the 
text box has stopped showing up on the screen, but shows up when I print (or

1.Text contained in a text box shows on screen but doesn't print

2.text box I can't see on screen shows up when I print

I have a small text box with a number in it that is 
floating around on a 2-column page of text.  It's

I print. Must be an issue with layers -- how do I make it 
visible on screen so I can delete?  Thanks in advance.
