  • 1. insert text in arrow lines problem
    I want to draw 2 rectangles with arrow in between, and add text on the arrow lines. I was able to create 2 rectangles and arrow, but I couldn't add text on the arrow lines. When I click arrow line, it will pop up a dialog window "Format AutoShape," but the text box tab is disabled. Any ideas to the workaround?? Thanks!!
  • 2. Another Draw Layer?
    Is there a makeshift alternate drawing layer besides the header or footer? I've tried a header for a picture and the usual drawing layer for annotation to lock the picture while working the annotation. I need to see picture details while doing this. Being grayed out, they are difficult to see. Evan Weiner Richland WA
  • 3. How add arrows and captions to a screen image?
    I did a screen print and copied it into Word. Now I need to add arrows pointing to parts of the screen image with explanatory notes for each arrow. How do I do that?
  • 4. autoshape default
    I use text boxes and drawing shapes a lot in my job and up until now, no problem. Now when I try to insert a text box it will go to only one size (about 4" x 6")instead of being able to grab the handles and size to what I want. I have also found (out of curiosity anf frustration) that if I go to a previous document that I have created (before this problem) and it includes a text box or drawing shape and I click on it and try to change it will go to the size that it is going to currently (4" x 6"), am I right in presuming that the default has been changed or reset (presumably by me by accident). How do I get back to me being in charge of sizing to what I want. Please help.

I'm trying to creat an image with a 'black box' or background, with "white 
text" inserted and I cannot get my word 2007 to do this. Please advise!
Thanks!

1. On the Home tab, in the Paragraph group, click the arrow beside the
Borders button (its appearance may vary depending on what sort of border was
last applied, but it's the rightmost button the bottom row), and choose
Borders and Shading... at the very bottom of the menu.

2. In the Borders and Shading dialog, choose the Shading tab.

3. Under Fill, choose Black, then click OK.

4. If your font color is set to Automatic, then you will automatically get
white text, or you can explicitly set it to white. For reversed text it's
usually best to use a sans serif font and make it Bold (and not too small).

Note that if you want the box to extend beyond the text, there are two ways 
to accomplish this:

1. You can use a table cell of the appropriate dimensions and fill that with 
color.

2. You can apply a black border to the paragraph(s) by clicking Box on the 
Border tab, which will then allow you to click Options... on the Border tab 
and set the "Distance from text" to allow more space around your text.

1.Text Boxes turning solid black with black print

Text boxes in my document change from white background with black type to 
black background with black type.  You can't see anything in the box except 
solid black, even if there is a graphic.  If you try to edit anything, you 
have to completely retype and then print to see what is there.  Printed copy 
comes out fine, it's just the box on the monitor screen that is the problem.  
What is causing this and can it be fixed?

2.I get a strange black box at the bottom of text boxes

At the bottom of my text boxes in Word I get a black box that fills that last 
four lines of the text box. But when I zoom out it starts to shrink so just 
past 80% zoom out it disappears, and it grows when I zoom in.
The box does not print, it appears to only be an overlay... but it is on all 
work that I do.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
