Sometimes your document has invisible objects, text boxes or shapes that affect your work. For example, text starts flowing around an 'underwater rock'.
This may happen when you work on a continuing project (newsletter, magazine) or use a previously formatted document, customised to your needs, for new documents. Instead of creating a new one you may create a copy via Save as or Duplicate and type over and insert new graphic elements.
When deleting previous elements on the page you may miss an object or two. Leftovers from a previous project without lines, frames and colour fill may stay hiding in you document.
To see if there are any leftovers that you don't need in your current document,
- click away so that cursor is not within text or click on a floating object;
- type select all: Command+A, or choose Select All from the Edit menu.
- click on the unwanted element to select it and delete.
