could it be, that you close the cnage with enter (causing a paragraph break, causing the baloon etc,,,)?
Thank you, Vito, for your suggestion.
I thought of that possibility, but I didn't make a paragraph break. As soon as I delete one letter, the balloon appears connected to the following paragraph. I have about 15 Word files with columns and they all act the same way. On the other hand, when I do the same thing in a non-table Word file, I don't have any problem at all.
I am at a complete loss.
