Attn: lindarobin, Thank you for your response to my earlier post on this issue. However, I tried to follow your suggestion and even reviewed tutorial. When I created a ne project and it opened a black sheet. I copy and pasted your comment. Yet could not move text with the cursor on lines 2,3 etc. I even added a text box following the tutorial. However, when I pasted your response in the text. It created a ne text box in the middle of the added text box. I am still at a loss.
Only when you have the blinking cursor in the text box, the program will paste text into that text box. Otherwise, a new text box will be automatically created for the pasted text.
I don't know what you mean when you say you want to move the text with the cursor. However, if you mean you want to move the text box, click once outside the text box to let the program know you are no longer editing the contents. Then hover over the box so you see the four pointed arrow. Click and drag the box to a new position.

Sorry about the confusion. Hopefully this will explain better. I stated with selecting create blank project. I set it for Landscape 8.5 X 11 Following the tutorial I added a text box and opened it to a size of 5.5 X 8.5 I then copied your response and pasted it in the text box. As you suggested on your second response I saw the blinking cursor on thee top line and was able to space the line to the right. I placed my cursor on line 2 and when I saw it also blinking I could not space the line to the right. The cursor jumped to the end on line one and was blinking. I placed the cursor back in front of line 2 and when it was blinking I could tab it to the right. I place the cursor on line 3 and once blinking I tried to space the line to the right and it seemed to shift the whole text seemed to reposition closer to the left edge of text box and cursor disappeared. I started a new project and copied and passed your response in the new project and it opened in a smaller box which I could expand to a full text box. Yet I could not edit this any different then I had mentioned above in my previous efforts. So, I uninstalled the whole program and have asked for a new downloadable email to install anew to see if this may work as you describe.
I appreciate your patience and responses. It looks like your a night person based on your responses.
I am baffled by what you are trying to do. It sounds like you are shifting things around to make text appear as if in columns? If so, you are going about it as if you are using an old fashioned typewriter, rather than a word processing app.
lindarobin, thank you for your response and comments. my project is a wedding booklet which I had created once on the old version of Print Shop that is no longer compatible in the newer version. This is my issue.
It's not a bother. I am very happy to help. Love weddings! I've done many invitations, save-the-date cards, etc. for clients. You can see examples of designs I made with The Print Shop to demonstrate how well suited this program is for things like that. http://forums.encoreusa.com/tm.asp?m=53994
Please post back with any more questions you may have. Let us know how your project is going.
