MS-WORD 2010 format

Hi,

Is it possible to insert a 'text box' that stays where it's put ?

For eg: If I put said box halfway down the page, then go to type at the top of the page, the box moves down - corresponding to the font/line size etc.

I want the box to stay put.

cheers

I use Word 2003 but, if I right click the text box and select "Format Text Box", click the Layout tab and then click the Advanced button, there is an option to set the Text Box's Absolute position so that it doesn't move. Presumably Word 2010 has a similar option?

With the text box active, right-click on it and a menu should pop up. Choose "More Layout Options", and in the "Position" section, remove the tick from "Move object with text".

Thanks both.

MGMCC: I couldn't find "absolute position", but did manage to reach More Options from there.

SS: Just the job - many thanks.
