Add a New Text Box
You can add new text boxes to a publication and type your own text. For example, you might need
to add a new text box to an empty area in your layout to include additional information, or you
might need to add new text boxes to a blank publication.
When you add a text box to a publication, Publisher does not supply any placeholder text. Therefore,
when you fill the text box with your own text, you do not replace any existing text. After you enter
text, you can format it or move and resize it as described in Chapter 21.
