4. Working with Objects > Exploring on your own

Exploring on your own

One of the best ways to learn about frames is to experiment on your own.

In this section, you’ll learn how to nest an object inside a frame. Follow these steps to learn more about selecting and manipulating frames.

1. Create a new document using the default settings in the New Document dialog box.

2. Create a small text frame, approximately 2” x 2”, and then choose Type > Fill With Placeholder Text to fill the frame with text.

3. Press the ESC key to switch to the Selection tool, and then use the Swatches panel to apply a fill color to the text frame.

4. Select the Polygon tool (Image) and draw a shape on the page. (Before creating the polygon, you can double-click the Polygon tool to specify the number of sides and optionally a star inset value if you want to create a starburst shape.)
