I am making an apple book. There is text outside the texbox on a couple of pages. How do I get rid of the misplaced text? I have no idea how it got there.

    If the text is the Ipsum Lorum place holder text found in Apple iBook Templates, its probably been "squeezed" off a previous page in which you  inserted an image or  possibly your text on previous page.


    The templates usually have linked text boxes already in the book template,  an inserted text box will sit of top of the template linked text causing it to  flow around the box.  If you do not intend using the  book template pages and have chosen "default" which looks empty... even if there is no Ipsum Lorum place holder text, its usual to have the linked text box ( empty) on the page.  Placing text in that box will automatically generate a new page if text overflows or the overflow of text will pop out at the  first usable space on any page.

    It could be a combination  of these, although  I dont undertsand why you cannot delete it as the inserted text box can be dragged  around the  page or made smaller, Allowing access to  the unwanted text!


    It may help other to assist if you  state which template you are using and what the text is and if you have inserted images which is not in a mask.
