Default This is not a valid selection

Hello

I hope you can help me, I am running word 2002.

I have a document which has pictures and text boxes in it, but when I try to copy and paste the text I am told "This is not a valid selection"



How do I Make it possible to be able to edit the text boxes?

Thank you

Richard @ edenworkshops

The message may suggest that some form of document protection been applied to the document.

You can upload an example document which illustrates the issue. Make a copy of the original document, remove anything sensitive and then use the Manage Attachments button at the bottom of the thread. If you can't see that option, first click the Go Advanced button at the bottom of the thread.

Thank you for your reply Stefan but I couldn't see the manage attachment button at the bottom of the thread, neither could I see the Go Advanced button at the bottom of the thread.

Thank you

Richard

You need to start a reply first. Once you are on the Reply to Thread screen, there will be an Additional Options section just below the message editor. That's where the MAnage Attachments button is.
