I have a text box with a blue anchor symbol on the left side of the margin.  There is no object associated with it.

I am using Word 2013.

This has nothing to do with the reverse P symbol.

I looked up how to remove the anchor symbol, and the link said to select the object and delete it

My problem is that I can not select the blue anchor.  I have tried repeatedly.

How can I select and delete that blue anchor symbol

Thanks
