Annoying drawing box in word!

Whenever i insert a text box, line, drawing, or any autoshape, an annoying box pops up saying "Create your drawing here". It is really annoying and was wondering if there is a way to stop it appearing.

Any ideas?

Thanks

This is the 'Drawing Canvas' option.

"To do this, go to the Tools menu and choose Options. Click on the General tab. The last option before "Measurement Units" is "Automatically create drawing canvas when inserting AutoShapes." Click on the check next to this to remove it. Click OK, and you will not be bothered by the drawing canvas again."
