I am making a calendar and using text boxes to span events across multiple days. It looks fine on my screen, but when I print it or try to shade the whole span, it stops in the original date.

I have created a brochure using projects gallery and a template newsletter and intend to email it out. I want to add hyperlinks and have successfully managed to do it by typing in my website address but I also want some of the words within the text boxes in my newsletter to have links which take the reader to other parts of the website.

I know how to do this in theory but it does not seem to work!
Can anyone help me pls?
