Note:  You can also hold down the mouse button, and drag diagonally on the page to draw a bounding box for the label text.

Once you have drawn the bounding box, you can resize it or move it:
  • To resize the bounding box, select it, then move the pointer over any edge or corner until the double arrow appears. Click and drag the edge or corner until the box is the size and shape you want.
  • To move the bounding box, select it, then drag it to any position on the page.
