How to Remove Frames in Word 2007
1. Open Word and press the 'Control' and 'N' keys simultaneously to create a new document. You'll create a frame object in the document, then delete it.
2. Click the 'Insert' menu label, then click one of the icons under the 'text box' button on the toolbar.
3. Drag the mouse in the document window to define the text box.
4. Right click the text box and click the 'Format' option, then click the 'Text box' tab in the dialog box that appears.
5. Click the 'Convert to Frame' button. Word will display a warning dialog box about losing information. Click 'OK' on this box to perform the conversion. Word will turn the text box into a frame. Now you have a true frame object, and not just an object that appears as a frame.
6. Right-click the frame and click the 'Format' option, then click the 'Remove' button in the dialog box that appears. Word will turn the frame into an object called a 'content control,' which has a graphical border. This border is another type of frame.
7. Click the text in the content control. Word will remove the small tab in the upper left of the control, indicating that the control is now a regular paragraph. The frame remains, but you'll remove it next.
8. Click the 'Home' menu label, then click the 'No border' button of the 'Paragraph' panel. Word will remove the frame from the paragraph.
Remove a Frame from a Shape
9. Click the 'Insert' menu label, then click the 'Rectangle' button of the 'Shapes' control on the toolbar.
10. Drag in the document to define a rectangle. Word gives the rectangle a frame by default.
11. Right-click the rectangle and click 'Format.'
12. Click the 'Colors' tab, then click the 'Color' dropdown box under the 'Line' subheading.
13. Click the 'No color' option of the palette that appears, then click 'OK' on all open dialog boxes. Word will remove the frame around the rectangle.
