Text box Shape
A text box is a rectangular area on the document where you can enter text. When you click in a text box, a flashing cursor will display indicating that you can begin typing. It allows you to enter multiple lines of text with all text formatting.
The Document Editor also supports a built-in shape resizer to resize the shapes present in the document. The shape resizer accepts both touch and mouse interactions.
Text wrapping style
Text wrapping refers to how shapes fit with surrounding text in a document. Please refer to this page for more information about text wrapping styles available in Word documents.
Positioning the shape
Document Editor preserves the position properties of the shape and displays the shape based on position properties. It does not support modifying the position properties. Whereas the shape will be automatically moved along with text edited if it is positioned relative to the line or paragraph.
