Now I see what you mean. I did not want to sound like I was lecturing. <g>
The text box does not really disappear. It is still within the file. You just can't see
it. I tested this with different objects like text frames, paths etc.
To retrieve wayward objects which have "disappeared":
Go to tools > Show Outline. Expand this a bit until you see three columns.
Click the plus sign to for the relevant page. Then look at the measurements, for example with A4 pages
no object should have an X-Pos of more than 210 mm. Then select the object or text frame,
then go to Edit > Modify and change the X-Pos to a measurement which will snap your missing object back on the page.
One other trick I find useful, especially with text frames and section is finished or I want to work with other objects
I Right-Click > Lock. This prevents text from disappearing like you have had, plus, on my relatively slow machine, it speeds
up text redraws. This is really useful with longer text-oriented docs. Franz was kind enough to put the lock function in about a week
after I asked him about it because. I am sometimes clumsy with the mouse ;)
This sounds like a good thing to add to the docs.
Hope that helps,
