Chapter 4. Text Input > To move text downward in its box:

To move text downward in its box:

To move the first line of text downward from the top of its box, select the box, choose Item > Modify (Cmd-M/Ctrl-M), click the Text tab, then enter a First Baseline: Offset value greater than 0. This value will be added to the current Text Inset value. From the Minimum pop-up menu, choose whether the first baseline will start at the largest Cap Height, Cap + Accent [mark], or Ascent (the top of the tallest character, as in an “l”or a “t”) .

Figure 2. First Baseline 1p6


or

Choose Item > Modify (Cmd-M/Ctrl-M), check Text Inset: Multiple Insets, then enter a higher Top value.

This may feel like cheating, but sometimes simplest is best: Just drag the whole box downward on the page with the Item tool. There's no law against doing that.

Get there fast

With the Item tool selected, you can double-click inside a text box to quickly open the Modify dialog box. Cmd/Ctrl double-click if the Content tool is selected.
