Missing the Feature

Earlier versions of Word had ability to create floating containers to put text & pictures in (not sure about it's name in English). Was that feature dropped in Word 2003?

Do you mean a text box? Word 2003 has those. You can cause any object to
'float' by setting its layout property to anything other than in-line with
text.

Actually that container could have textboxes and other autoshapes inside, so it was not a simple textbox. It was really useful for annotating illustrations...

Hi Sandy,

It depends on which feature you were using.

MS Draw was replaced by its built in equivalent, the MS Office Drawing Canvas
Insert=>Picture=>New Drawing.

There is also the MS Word Picture Editor, which appears if you right click on a graphic and see 'Picture Object' as a choice.

A textbox, table cell or other Autoshape can also hold different types of content.
