Dear all,

i generate a docx file from a PDF for further editing (I use The convertion generates some text boxes which I cannot reproduce myself on OO Writer. They behave more like tables, but i cannot select them like I do with tables. I also cannot move or click on them like in the case of text boxes. What is it? (see pic) How to get rid of them maintaining text?

In general, a sample file is better than a picture. Check if that's a section though...

This is not an answer to your question - should be moved to the edited question instead

These are sections, see FormatSections, or in a recent enough LO, right-click inside one and choose Edit Section....

Removing sections in the dialog only removes section, not its contents.
