Chapter 10. Pictures and text > To reshape a runaround or clipping path:

To reshape a runaround or clipping path:

1.
Choose the Item or Content tool.

2.
Click on a picture that has a clipping path. You can edit the runaround for any of these Types: Embedded Path, Alpha Channel, Non-White Areas, or Picture Bounds.

3.
Choose Item menu > Edit > Runaround (Ctrl-F10).

or

Choose Item menu > Edit > Clipping Path (Ctrl-Shift-F10).

4.
Use any of the techniques that you'd normally use to reshape a Bézier path (see pages 182–189)× . You can add or delete an anchor point, drag a point, segment, or control handle, or convert an anchor point from corner to curved (or vice versa).

Note: If you edit a clipping path and then reopen the Clipping folder tab, the clipping path Type will be listed as User Edited Path. If you choose a different Type at this point and click OK, you'll lose your custom path edits.

5.
When you're done editing the run around or clipping path, turn off Item menu > Edit > Runaround (Ctrl-F10) or Clipping Path (Ctrl-Shift-F10).

Tip

To update the picture on screen, move it using the Content tool or use the screen redraw keystroke, which is Shift-Esc. To update the text wrap as you move a picture, turn on Live Refresh in Edit menu > Preferences > Application > Interactive folder tab.
