About textbox

Hello, I saw some template's text box is very interesting. The page display two columns. There is one text box in each of column. When the context in the first text box is full and needs more space, then it automatically goes to the second text box. When we delete some chars in the first text box, the context in the second text box also backspaces as well. It means these two text box have some kind of chain connection.
I have two question:
1) How to do it? (prefer example)
2) The second question is if I insert a text box in the page, I can not find it. I have to click the web page space randomly to locate it since it is invisible. What is the fast way to locate it?


I am using Microsoft word 2007/2010.
Thanks.

Click on one of the text boxes and then on Create Link in the Text group on the Format tab. You will get a special icon which will allow to to select an empty text box to take the overflow.

About the invisibility; I'm a bit confused about the web page, but are you sure that the texbox has a border with a different colour from the background colour.

Yes. I found it. But there is a text box which can't be located. There is context inside it. I click anywhere on the page but no respone. Other text boxs can be easily located by one click then the dash boundries are visible. Why?

I can't reproduce that behaviour. Can you post the document, edited if necessary?

Yes. As I suggested, it just doesn't have a visible border.

If you want one, use the tiny arrow at the bottom of the 'Text Box Styles' group to open the 'Format Text Box' dialogue. Select the 'Colours and Lines' tab. You will see in the 'Fill' and the 'Line' sections that 'No Color' is selected. You can change either to make the box's position apparent even when it is not selected.

I meant I want to edit the context in the text box, but I could not located. Can you please insert some dummy text in it?

Not sure that I understand the problem.

The text box already contains a Hyperlink in a right-aligned paragraph. It also has a minimal height, But you can increase it to give room for another paragraph by dragging the square handle in the centre of either the top or the bottom of the selection frame. You would need to position the cursor at one end or the other, and hit Enter. A new paragraph will be created.

Note that it normally helps to show the paragraph and other formatting marks in the document with the (¶) button on the Home tab.  With right-aligned paragraphs in a textbox, there isn't room to see it, so I suggest that you, temporarily perhaps, left-align the paragraphs while editing.

I appreciate your many inputs. However you did misunderstood my question.
 iphonePlease look at the image, can you replace the word "iphone" with a new word in my word file?
It is in the right column, I could not edit it because I could not locate this text box. Using mouse click but nothing found.

I found the solution. There are two text boxs. One contains the other one.
I used ctrl F to locate the outside one and deleted it then success.
