Chapter 3. Layout Enhancements > Using Graphic Text

Using Graphic Text

One method for displaying non-standard fonts on a layout is to create the text in a paint program. The text can be pasted into your layout as a graphic and will display identically on any computer. This isn't a very efficient way to work if you have lots of text, but it's just fine for logo type or other graphics.

There are three ways to bring over graphic type—one if you are creating the type yourself, another if you have no paint programs and are inserting a graphic provided by someone else, and a third if you don't want the graphic shape to be editable on the layout. This last option, which relies on a container field, is particularly useful if you're dealing with a logo that must look exactly as it was designed. Copied or inserted graphics are all too easy to stretch and compress without your realizing it. Graphics placed in a container field stay put.
