I have been instructed to make a new MHF sign for our van window as ours is "tatty"..
Found the name badge download and got that.. BUT there is no text box to enter our forum name..
I am sure in the past you just went to the blank section, typed and printed...
On my open office version of word I cant even find anywhere to create a text box, maybe because this download is in the form of a graphic ??

Is it me ??? any help please

GRRRR... :mad: Never had this abuse elsewhere,,,,,

Have you seen my hand writing ! If you had then you would know why it needs to be printed..
This is very important, Irene is on a mission and wants a new sign (god knows why)...

Mo... I will wait for a "younger" more technical person can reply.. (y)

It's a docx file which is Word. Something similar happens when you open it in Pages on a Mac as well. The text box is there but appears on a different page. It doesn't seem to want to sit over the image.

It must be something to do with how other word processors interpret docx formatting.

Dont ask me how but I clicked something and got a txt box maker and did it that way..
Think the grandkids have been on and closed stuff down that I know is usually there..

You can see my new sign at the soul meet and Stratford.. (y)

For ref, when opened I never got that bit that says "insert name here"..

open office version of word

It opens with Microsoft Word

You have to 'enable editing' to type your name in the white box

The document isn't compatible with Open Office in the same way.

You have to open the Drawing toolbar then click on the T symbol and drag a Text Box in the name area. Once you have the box you can type and position the text you want.

Bored at work and just been playing round with it. Has a Fun pitch marker ever been suggested?

Anyway.. All done, printed and laminated..
