Maybe I didn't state myself clearly: I do understand that you for some reason 
want to have that scrapbook sollution. The problem is just, that when people 
place some text besides the document, it seems to disappear completely. Now I 
would consier that a hge problem.  What if one moves the mouse too far to the 
right by accident and wups - the enitre text box with all styling is gone! 
Can't you just diaable the possibility to move anything in that "dark hole" 
besides the document?
