When I right-click a textbox shape and select "Save as Picture", no matter what format I choose, the resulting image has unwanted space in it.

For example, if I have a textbox shape with text "Label", font "Arial", font size 8 and a red border, when I save this shape (PNG or GIF or EMF or whatever) the resulting image has some space to the left, top and right of the red border. It seems as if the textbox was centered in the image. Is there a way to get rid of this space?


Hi, I've found an answer on this link. Not the answer I would have liked, but an answer after all

Thanks again

You can auto crop it using third party software. See this for example –  George Apr 28 at 8:54
