    Post Word 2010 Text Boxes Float on Some PCs, Not Others

    What is the source of the problem when documents I write contain some text boxes whose wrap text is square and others that are in front of text, these boxes move -- I say float -- all over the place, where they are not supposed to be. This does not happen on my machine (Windows 7) but it happens on other Windows 7 machines to whom I have sent the documents.

    This happens even though the dotx template is standard, the printer drivers are upgraded, and the normalm fonts are standard. What could it be?

    Thanks!

    Just a thought--Make sure the check box before Automatically update document styles is not checked in the Templates and Add-ins dialog in your document.
