    Ok so I am using Word 2010 and I have a document template that has textboxes in it for placing photographs in. Simple enough to insert a picture into the textboxes, BUT what happens if I want to remove or delete a picture from one of the textboxes because I have made an error choosing the wrong photo or something? It deletes the picture AND the textbox! Surely there is a way (aside from using the undo button, which is not always practical) to be able to remove the picture and leave the textbox behind.

    Please help!

    Word is not the 'friendliest' to work with but I cannot reproduce it here.

    I put a textbox in a document and a picture in the text box, just click the picture, press delete and choose a new one to insert (when in the textbox) no problem.

    I attached 2 documents, one in 2003 and the same saved as 2007/2010

    Maybe the textbox frame is too tight around the picture frame so when you think you selected the picture, you selected the texbox frame, then of course all is deleted

    That's really weird, because even when I put in a super large textbox and then insert a picture, it seems to resize the picture automatically to fit the textbox. I think it must sort of link them or something. So when I go to delete the picture, everything goes, textbox and picture.

    Do you think it could be a setting within Word2010?

    Thank you for your help with this.

    :eek:

    There are options what does what.

    You should see if the textbox option says something about stretching the image.

    I don't know
