Why does a “red scissors” icon appear in my book layout?

The red scissor icon means that you have placed a text box too close to the edge of the book. In most instances the box that the text is in is too long so when you drag it into place and some of the box is hanging off the edge of the page layout, you will get this warning sign. To fix this, click on the transform box below the text box and simply reduce the size of the text box when the orange lines appear, so that the text box does not go over the edge of the book. Please keep in mind that it is best to keep all text at least 1/4 inch away from the edge of your book.
