Perhaps this has been discussed here before; if so, my apologies.

Has anyone been able to bypass the very intrusive and disruptive
message that appears in Word XP when you try to insert a textbox
or autoshape in a document? (The message takes over the entire
screen and says something like INSERT YOUR TEXT ELEMENT HERE.)

I hate to sound like an old grump, but inserting these elements
has been so simple in the last few versions that I really resent
this "improvement".
