A Snazzy Text Box in MS Word

Dennis Faas's picture

The traditional, rectangular box is what many Word users are familiar with when you mention a text box. Let's face it, we're all familiar and comfortable with the traditional text box...but let's take a walk on the wild side and do something different!

Follow the steps below:

  1. First make sure that your Drawing toolbar is visible.
  2. If it is not, simply right-click on one of your toolbars and click on the word Drawing. You will now see the Drawing toolbar on your screen at the bottom.
  3. Click the AutoShape button on the Drawing toolbar to create an AutoShape.
  4. Select a shape. I like the folded corner myself.
  5. Right-click that AutoShape, and choose Add Text on the pop-up menu that appears.

Wasn't that simple to do? And everyone will wonder how you did it!
