I am writing a document in Word and want to present some key facts and figures in a separate text box, preferably in a sort of column on the right hand side of the page, alongside the main text. How do I do this? TIA!
In my version of Word (2007) you move to the Insert menu strip and then under shapes you can select "Text Box" under basic shapes or there's a "Text Box" set of options on the right which give some differently formatted text boxes.
If you then select the text box you've just made you can go the the "Format" menu strip and do things like control it's position and how the text wraps around it.
