Removing border around text boxes?

  • 2. captions on pictures
    I'm trying to figure out how to put a caption on a picture. The problem is that I want the caption below the picture but the picture is sideways relative to the page. I nearly did it by accident, but I need help figuring out what I did because I can't do this on purpose. What I did was I inserted the graphic, then created the caption. Then I created a text box and word automatically put the picture and caption within. Then when I rotate the text sideways, the caption appears in the right position (or at least in the right orientation). But once the caption and the picture are in the text box, the picture can't be rotated, and I can't figure out how to put the two items in the text box together after I rotate the picture. When I try to copy and paste them in, Word tells me it's impossible. So, I would like to know how to have insert a text box around two items. An alternate way that I figured out was to create a text box for the caption only and then place it under the picture. My problem there is that I am not sure how to align the text box with the picture (left or center) so that it looks professional. Also, this method takes a lot more steps, and I may have to do it many times. Any suggestions? Thanks. Carla

    Hi Eric. Not if you want to keep it as a Word document. If you convert the document to a .PDF file, then it's reasonably secure (unless someone scans that document) Please post any further questions or followup to the newsgroups for the benefit of others who may be interested. Unsolicited questions forwarded directly to me will only be answered on a consulting basis. Hope this helps Doug Robbins - Word MVP "Eric Prosser" < XXXX@XXXXX.COM > wrote in message news: XXXX@XXXXX.COM ... > Is there a way to take scanned signatures and place them in Word documents, but lock the image and keep it from being deleted or downloaded/copied. Does anyone know if Word allows for this? Or even if you have alterative thoughts, I'll take them! I would call this the poor mans way of digital signatures. > > Eric > XXXX@XXXXX.COM

Removing border around text boxes?

I'd like to remove the border that is automatically put 
around text boxes.  I tried borders & shading, but it 
says it has "none".  I tried clicking on a couple of the 
border options to be sure & it inserts new lines inside 
the border that's created when I open the text box. I 
don't want any lines at all around some labels I'm 
making.  Is this possible?

Double-click on the border of the text box to bring up the Format Text Box
dialog. On the Colors and Lines tab, choose No Line.
