Want to make them EDITABLE, but . . .


Want to make them EDITABLE, but . . .
People, I work on Mac, and I really want to do all in word document and editable. But, to create colorful backgrounds and pics i use ILLUSTRATOR, so then What I do is to export the whole file with text and all as a picture to the word document . . . and that is why my worksheets are not always editable.
Does anybody know a different method to use on Mac??
Especially when I need to create isolated boxes of text in word to just drag next to an image.

create only the grafic with illustrator, then insert it in a word file and insert text boxes for the text. it seems too simple, maybe I didn īt understand where īs the problem for you... do you know how to use word (the software)?
I use a mac too, I would happy to help you, write again

Thank u girls, I just donīt know how to write text on word, for example to insert a text box like in illustrator. I just know how to write continuous text. Hope I make myself understood.
But I will probably have to investigate the software  . . .
Can I create a separate text box in word? And drug it to the place in the sheet I want?
