    Draw toolbar creates a box; doesn't allow drawing where I want

    I am using MS Word 2003 with Win7 Enterprize and the draw toolbar no longer allows me to draw where I want the drawing to be. It opens a huge box and says 'Create your drawing here". If all I want to do is to draw an arrow to point something out and a text box to explain next to it, it will only appear in this huge box that is anywhere in my document that it doesn't belong and I don't know how to get my arrows or boxes to where I want them. Can anyone tell me what to do to put my lines and boxes where I want them, please? Thank you, Julia

    Make sure the highlighted option is UNCHECKED.
