thanks! would really appreciate it if you can find a way to turn it off. It is very annoying! especially when working on intense documents and this thing pops up and throws everything off!

:tazz: Change the way graphics are inserted
To insert and past graphics, you can decide the following:

Whether or not pictures are inserted as inline, so that they move with text, or floating, so that text wraps above, in front of, or behind them when you insert or paste them.
Whether or not a drawing canvas, which helps you arrange and move multiple graphics, is inserted around drawing objects, such as AutoShapes and text boxes, when you create them.
Specify the default positioning of pictures

On the Tools menu, click Options.
Click the Edit tab.
In the Insert/paste pictures as box, click the default positioning you want.
To set the default as inline, select Inline with text; to set the default as floating, select any of the other options.

Specify whether a drawing canvas is inserted around drawing objects

On the Tools menu, click Options.
Click the General tab.
Select or clear the Automatically create drawing canvas when inserting AutoShapes check box.

if you do the drawing thing...like inserting an autoshape and what not when that comes up you can press ctrl z and it fixes the issue and you can still draw....but sittingcool's suggestion sounds more permanent
