    word to pdf - empty boxes (97)

    I have word 97 and I created a document with boxes drawn around some of the text (I used the drawing tool). When I try to convert to pdf (I've tried both acrobat pdf maker and distiller 5.0) two of the boxes appear empty. It's always the same ones. I have tried reconverting several times, retyping that entire page, and various cutting and pasting. It's like acrobat isn't getting the "send behind text" order on these two boxes.
    I've tried posting to the Adobe help area and Microsoft communities and I'm not getting any replies. Any ideas? You are my last hope!
    Thanks,
    Laura

    Hi, Laura. I don't know if this will help, but maybe instead of using "send behind text" in the order, set the fill color on the box to be none in the object properties.

    Boy. Word seems to never miss an opportunity to make me feel dumb! Thank you for replying--that fixed the problem. I'm glad I've found this resource.

    I'm glad we were able to lend a hand. If I had <img src=/S/money.gif border=0 alt=money width=17 height=15> for everytime one of the apps made me feel silly I'd be a millionaire! <img src=/S/yep.gif border=0 alt=yep width=15 height=15>
