moving the cursor in OfficeOrg Writer

Hi,
     I'm trying to create a report in OfficeOrg writer.... the second page contains  a disclaimer which i copy and paste from another document, the disclaimer is encased in a box and i cannot get  the cursor out of the area... I want to create a third page to copy and paste into it. I normally create the next page by just keep hitting return until the next page is created, however in this instance because the "cursor" is stuck in the box", if i do this  i'll just get a bigger box,

How do i get my cursor out of the box?

Hello blossompark,

before you paste the text box, insert a few empty paragraphs by hitting return a few times, then paste the text box above those paragraphs. You can then click one of the empty paragraphs below the text box and the cursor will now be outside of the text box.

cheers, teylyn

Blossompark,

Please note that instead of hitting enter until you get to a new page, just press Cntrl-Enter.  This will create a page break and automatically send saaaou to the next page.  I can't tell exactly what kind of box you are copying.  Is it a table, frame, etc?  Once you paste you box in you should be able to press Cntrl-END and go to the end of the document, thereby getting you out of the box.  Depending on what type of box you are pasting, you may have to click above the box first and then press Cntrl-End to go to the end of the document.
