Thinking and practise, InDesign workshop.

Looking at text and paragraphs. With large documents based on text I learnt you need to make sure text isn’t indented. This little red button means that theres more text to place, if you click it you are able to put the remaining text in the next column. Image

Holding down shift key and clicking  in the column after clicking place text will place all the text for you (auto flow).

With these buttons you can indent. Image

This button will make the first letter of the paragraph larger.ImageImage

Leading…Makes text easier to read as it increases space between each line.


Images and graphics…

Make sure nothing is selected. Then file- place

By using shift and command and the arrows you can change the size of your image in proportion. Image

taking away the background colour you draw a box around the image Image using this button then you fill it with a colour.Image

Then you need to send the colour box to the back. Image

Then clickImage


Then delete the pink box around the duck.

To make the image wrap around text…


Filling shapes with text. Use the pen tool to do this. ImageImage


Making the text follow the outer line…Image use this button on the text tool, click on the line you want the text to follow and click place again.
