Positioning a Text Box
Positioning a Text Box
To move an object, drag it by any part of its border other than a selection handle. Select
the object, and then position the mouse pointer over a border so that the pointer turns
into a four-headed arrow. Then drag the object to a new position. With a text box, you must
position the mouse pointer over a border and not over the inside of the frame; with all
other object types, you don’t have to be that precise; you can move an object by dragging
anywhere within it.
You can also set an exact position by using the Format Shape task pane:
1. Click the dialog box launcher in the Size group on the Drawing Tools Format
tab, as shown in Figure 3.12 . The Format Shape dialog box opens with the Size
controls displayed, as in Figure 3.13.
2. Click the Size heading to collapse the Size section, and then click the Position
heading to expand the Position section. The Position controls appear, as shown in
Figure 3.14.
You can adjust the position with the Position controls.
