Cannot delete text (mx 2004)


I was typing in a static text box and then afterwards (I think) I saved the fla file and closed it. When I opened it again, the text appeared to be in the application form but I could not click on it. It is not on any form or in any movie but IT IS STILL ON THE STAGE!!..and I cannot delete it. I cannot erase it. I cannot select it.

Has anyone else had this happen? Any solutions?

Right now, I am covering the text up with a colored rectangle but I would expect this might keep happening and I don’t want to keep covering up undeletable text with rectangles!
