    Turn canvas off (Word 2002)

    I wanted to draw a line in my word document. I started to draw it and this canvas opens up. How do I get rid of the canvas after I draw the line, forever.

    I think this will work, uncheck

    Tools > Options -- General tab

    "Automatically create drawing canvas when inserting auto-shapes"

    If you want the canvas on some occassions but not others then you can simply draw your line outside of the automatically created canvas, which will then quietly disappear.
