PowerPoint ActiveX text boxes and labels split in to 2 parts during presentation RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I add a text box or label from Powerpoint's developer tab, they look fine until I run the presentation and then they split into 2 boxes, one where it should be but is unfunctioning and another one above and left of the first that allows actions.

    I simply want a control that I can activate to pop up an input box and to store the result. It happens with labels and text boxes as soon as I assign some vba code to it. The input box / vba works fine but having the ghost box ruins the page layout

    sorry images removed at your request


    and no, there isn't another hidden control on the page.
