Office 2007: Why Does Drawing Object Or Shape Disappear When Deleting Text near it?*3945.html

You cannot put drawing objects into a text box,…

These were the most helpful links I could find, but none quite exactly addressed my problem.  However, after an hour or so of tinkering I figured it out:

SOLUTION:  Format the AutoShape as “In line with text” — then you can move cut text from your document and paste it into the textbox under AutoShape with the object (textbox or AutoShape) deleting itself! 🙂
