Lesson 6. Adventure newsletter > Positioning the pull quote

Positioning the pull quote

The pull quote for this page includes a photograph. By putting the pull quote and the photograph inside a frame, you'll be able to set text wrap once for the entire pull quote, and still be able to edit the text and photo.

1.
Select the rectangle-frame tool () from the toolbox. Draw a frame on the pasteboard, and leave it selected.

2.
Choose Element > Text Wrap. For Wrap Option, select the second icon (rectangular wrap). Type 0p9 for all Standoff Values, and then click OK.

3.
With the frame still selected, display the Colors palette, click the Fill button (), and then select PANTONE Blue 072 CV. Choose Element > Stroke > 6 pt.

4.
Be sure the top left reference point of the Control palette Proxy icon is selected. Type –39p9.5 for X, 24p5.5 for Y, 10p2 for W, 14p3 for H, and then press Enter or Return.

5.
With the frame still selected, choose File > Place. Select the file 06TextC.doc in the 06Lesson folder, make sure the Within Frame option is selected, the Show Filter Preferences option is deselected, the Retain Format option is selected, and then click Open (Windows) or OK (Macintosh). The text is placed within the frame.

The text may be difficult to read because it is black on a dark blue background. You will apply a style that will make it easy to read.

6.
Select the text tool (), click an insertion point in the pull quote text, and choose Edit > Select All. Display the Styles palette and click the Pull Quote style.

Now you will add a duotone image to the pull quote. First you will add a paragraph return so that the image will be in its own paragraph.

7.
With the text tool still selected, click at the beginning of the text you just placed and press Enter or Return. Then press the Left Arrow key to move the insertion point back to the top of the text block.

8.
Choose File > Place, select the 06Art1.eps file from the 06Lesson folder, make sure the As Inline Graphic option is selected, and then click Open or OK.

The text and photograph don't appear properly aligned right now, but you will fix that in the following steps.

9.
Select the pointer tool, select the frame (do not select any of the frame contents), and choose Element > Frame > Frame Options. Type 0 for each Frame Inset, and then click OK.

Not enough of the top of the photograph is visible, so you'll add leading to the line that contains it.

10.
Select the text tool and triple-click the photograph in the pull quote to select the paragraph containing the photograph. In the Character view of the Control palette, type 38 points for leading (), and then press Enter or Return.

11.
Click the text tool within the first line after the photo, and in the paragraph view of the Control palette, type 1 pica for space before the paragraph (), and then press Return or Enter.
