Default Question about putting editable inscriptions over a picture in RTF

Hello !!



I'm trying to put editable labels on top of an image (scanned table) in MS Word 2003, to save it into RTF (to be able to later automatically replace labels to a meaningful text in external application). the scanned image takes all A4 of the document, and on top of it I want to put text boxes at some specific coordinates.

For the "label placeholders", I use "inscription" (I cannot exactly know how is it called in English, cause I use Russian Office, sorry. but it's a button between Oval and "A" (WordArt) letter on a "Drawing" panel)

I cannot totally win it. At First, it seems working, but after adding one or twom everything becomes horrible - I cannot neither add, neither select this inscription boxes.

Anyone probably knows a better approach ?

Thanks !!

UPD: if there's no "better" approach - may be someone can help with an advice, on better practives how to do what am I treying to do ?

hi 62mkv,

What you can do change the 'layout' of your scanned image to 'behind text, then overlay it with a borderless Word table, whose cell layout you adjust to suit your form's structure. You can then type into any cell and the words will appear to be in the fields in your form.

For an example of this, see the attachment to my first post in this thread:
http://www.msofficeforums.com/word/6...-can-i-do.html
The document attached to my post has formfields in the table cells, but you don't have to do it that way - you can have the table cells without the formfields.
