Microsoft Office and Microsoft Project – removing border from Text box

I was working with a client in Microsoft Project recently and we had created a text box on the Gantt Chart to put a comment in as to why a task had been delayed. I was then asked how to remove the border from the text box.

Whether working in Microsoft Project or Microsoft Office, the border from a text box can be removed as follows.

In Microsoft Project, right-click on the edge of the text box and from the menu that appears, click Properties. The Format Drawing dialog box will be displayed.

On the Line and Fill tab, in the Line section, click None. Click OK. There will no longer be a line around your text box.

In Microsoft Office, right-click on the edge of the text box and from the pop-up menu that appears, click Format Shape. The Format Shape pane will appear to the right of your window. Click Line. Select No Line. There will no longer be a line around your text box.
