Text can be caused to flow from one text box to another allowing a multi-column layout or allowing an article to begin in the front, and continue in the back of a publication.
A space in the dialog box where text or numbers can be entered so that a command can be carried out.
An object box that contains "free floating" text - that can be moved, resized, or formatted as necessary within a slide.
