I've applied border, background and shadow styles etc to a text box and would like to save this so I can use it for later use. I cannot find how to do this.

Create your text box, while the text box is selected, select the "insert" menu. click on the arrow below insert "text box" button. select "save to text box gallery". A box will come up, select your choices (i didn't change anything) and thats it.

When you want to insert your saved text box into a document, select the "insert" menu Click "Text box" Scroll down, you will find it at the very bottom.

I think, that the way to do it, is that you create a template, and copy that textbox there. Then when creating document based to that template, your textbox with all its styles is available for use.

That seems a very clunky way of having to deal with it. Surely they must have built in a way to do this? you can save text styles for example – Chris Apr 23 '10 at 21:38
