How to turn off 'Insert Drawing Here' in word?

  gplatt2000 15:06 22 Mar 2004

Hi all! Hopefully just a quick question. I find it very annoying in Word 2002 that when I try creating a text box, rectangle or anything similar, that a hige area apears saying 'Insert your drawing here', often messing up the entire page's layout. Is there a way of turning off this feature?

Thanks a lot

Tools / Options / Genereal Tab; untick box "Automatically create drawing canvas..."
