I'm adding some text boxes over a graph pasted into Word 2003, but I can't position them exactly where they need to be as the smallest lateral or vertical movement possible is a jump of about 3mm. Is there any way of reducing the minimum increment of movement to say 1mm?

Thanks.

Have you tried moving the text box with the arrow keys instead of the mouse? I'm not sure what the exact increment is, but it seems fairly small.
