There are several frames or grids on a page, where I can't control where the text goes. How can I get rid of the unwanted text frames or whatever they are? I have a screen shot of the page that shows what I am talking about. Is there a way to share that screen shot here?
Try selecting the text and other items you do want to keep and put them on a new layer and lock it. Then Press Ctrl+A (Cmnd+A on Mac probably) and Delete. What do you mean by grids? If you mean the Document Grid, press Ctrl+' to hide that. "where I can't control where the text goes." Not sure I follow.
