Word 2002: suddenly, I cannot create a forward text box link
Posted on 2011-02-25
I was adjusting some text boxes and broke the forward link between two boxes (txtb A and txtb C) in order to add one in between the two (txtb B).
Now when I select txtb A, right click, and try to "Create forward text box link" it gives me the pitcher icon; when I float it over txt B it turns into the pouring pitcher icon, but when I click to confirm, it doesn't create the link.
(The text does not flow into B, Right Clicking on A does not now offer the option "Next Text Box", In Undo, it does not offer the option "Undo Text Box Linking" as it does when it has successfully created a text box...)
