Chapter Three. Working with Text > Creating Text Frames

#16. Creating Text Frames

Most of the text you see in an InDesign layout—headlines, articles, figure captions, ad copy, and so on—is contained by invisible, rectangular text frames. You can, however, draw text frames of any shape, and you can use the master text frame you specify in the New Document dialog box.

Drawing Text Frames

To create a rectangular text frame, select the Type tool on the Tools panel. Click and drag to draw a text frame. Use the width and height values shown in the gray box and the rulers to judge the size and placement of the text frame (Figure 16a).
