Lesson 3. Project proposal > Assembling the second page

Assembling the second page

After applying character specifications to the text on the second page, you will place two graphics with captions.

Applying styles

The styles you created earlier will simplify your work on the second page.

1.
Click the page 2 icon to view the second page of the publication.

All master-page elements display on the second page.

2.
Magnify the view of the text in the lower half portion of column 1.

3.
Select the text tool (), click the subhead Light and View Considerations in column 1 to establish an insertion point

4.
In the Styles palette, click Subhead 1.

5.
With the text tool still selected, click the first paragraph below the subhead text you just formatted to establish an insertion point in the paragraph.

6.
In the Styles palette, click No Indent to apply the style to the selected paragraph.

7.
Choose File > Save.

Placing a drawing

You will place and position a drawing in the lower portion of column 1.

This drawing was scanned, then resized in Adobe Photoshop and saved in TIFF format with a resolution of 100 dpi.

1.
From the horizontal ruler, drag to create a horizontal ruler guide aligned with the baseline of the third line of text above the bottom margin guide.

To allow for a 2-line caption, you will use this horizontal ruler guide to align the bottom edge of the drawing with the baseline of text in column 2.

2.
Choose View > Fit in Window.

3.
Choose File > Place, click (do not double click) the 03ArtB.tif file in the 03Lesson folder to select it. Make sure As Independent Graphic is selected, and click Open (Windows) or OK (Macintosh).

4.
With the loaded graphic icon displayed, click in column 1 to place the drawing.

5.
With the drawing still selected, drag it until its bottom edge snaps to the horizontal ruler guide you just created, and its left edge snaps to the left column guide.

With the drawing aligned, you are ready to resize the text block in column 1.

6.
With the pointer tool selected, click the text in column 1 to select it as a text block, and drag the bottom windowshade handle to display the last line of text to be one line space above the drawing.

Now that the drawing and text are aligned, you are ready to place the caption text.

7.
Choose File > Place, and double-click the 03TextC.doc file in the 03Lesson folder.

8.
With the loaded text icon displayed, click in column 1 below the drawing to place the text.

9.
Select the text tool (), and click the caption to establish an insertion point.

10.
In the Styles palette, click Caption to apply a style to the text.

11.
Magnify the view of the caption text.

12.
Select the pointer tool, click the caption text to select it as a text block, drag the bottom windowshade handle until the entire story is displayed.

13.
Hold down Shift (to constrain the movement), and drag the text block until the baseline of the last line of text is aligned with the bottom margin guide.

14.
Choose File > Save.

Using the Control palette to position a graphic

After placing a second illustration on the second page, you will enter precise values in the Control palette to move it.

The illustration you are about to place and position was created in Adobe Dimensions®, sized in Adobe Photoshop, and saved in TIFF file format with a resolution of 100 dpi.

Note

Adobe Dimensions is a design tool that lets you create and edit 2D Bézier paths and text directly within the program and then extrude, revolve, bevel, and manipulate them for a 3D look.


1.
Scroll to view the upper right portion of the page.

2.
Choose File > Place, and double-click the 03ArtC.tif file in the 03Lesson folder.

3.
With the loaded graphic icon displayed, click in column 2 to place the illustration.

4.
With the illustration still selected, select the top left reference point in the Control palette Proxy icon. Type 4.316 for X and .417 for Y, and press Enter or Return.

The top left corner of the illustration is aligned with the specified coordinate position (4.316, .417).

In addition to overlapping the text in column 2, the illustration overlaps text in column 1.

5.
Choose File > Save.

Creating a custom text wrap

Since this nonrectangular illustration extends into column 1, you will create a custom text wrap that makes the text flow around the edges of the illustration.

1.
With the pointer tool selected, click the illustration to select it, and choose Element > Text Wrap.

The Text Wrap dialog box lets you specify how you want the text to flow around the graphic boundary of the selected object.

2.
In the Text Wrap dialog box, click the second icon (rectangular wrap) for Wrap option. For Text Flow, make sure the third icon (wrap all sides) is selected. Type 0 for Bottom (leave the other Standoff values at their default setting), and click OK.

A rectangular graphic boundary (dotted line) frames the illustration, with the text flowing around the edges of the graphic boundary within both columns. You will customize the shape of this graphic boundary to allow the text to flow around the illustration with greater precision.

3.
Position the cursor at the bottom edge of the graphic boundary (dotted line) and the right edge of column 1, and click.

An additional handle is displayed on the graphic boundary. (If you do not see a new handle, click again more quickly.)

4.
Position the pointer on the bottom left corner handle of the graphic boundary, hold down Shift (to constrain the movement), and drag the corner graphic handle up until it is aligned with the baseline of the fourth line of text in column 1.

The custom text wrap allows the text to flow around the text wrap boundary. However, although the text is wrapping to the boundary, a portion of the graphic (its white background) is on top of the text, obscuring it. You will send the graphic to the back of the stacking order.

5.
Choose Element > Arrange > Send to Back to stack the illustration behind the text and graphic elements.

6.
Choose File > Save.

Placing, formatting, and aligning a caption

You will place, format, and align a caption to be displayed below the illustration at the top of column 2. Before placing the caption text, you will reduce the size of the text block in column 2 to make some space for the 3-line caption.

1.
In column 1, locate the third line of the second paragraph. Then, from the horizontal ruler, drag to create a horizontal ruler guide that is aligned with the baseline of that third line (Y equals approximately 3.4 inches in the Control palette).

To make room for the caption, you'll align the first line of proposal text in column 2 with this baseline. You'll start by dragging its top windowshade handle down, below the text wrap boundary, so the text block is easier to position.

2.
With the pointer tool selected, select the proposal text in column 2 as a text block, and drag the top windowshade handle down until one line of text displays above the horizontal ruler guide you just created. Then, holding down Shift (to constrain the movement), drag the text block so the baseline of_the first line of text aligns with the ruler guide.

You are ready to place the caption text.

3.
Choose File > Place, and double-click the 03TextD.doc file in the 03Lesson folder.

4.
With the loaded text icon displayed, click in column 2 (below the illustration) to place the text.

Before aligning the caption text, you will apply the Caption style.

5.
Select the text tool (), and click the caption text to establish an insertion point.

6.
In the Styles palette, click Caption to apply a style to the text.

7.
From the horizontal ruler, drag to create a horizontal ruler guide aligned with the baseline of text closest to the 3.02 inch mark in column 1.

You will use this horizontal ruler guide to align the caption text with the text in column 1.

8.
Select the pointer tool, and click the caption to select it as a text block. Then drag the text block until the baseline of the last line of text is aligned with the horizontal ruler guide you just created.

9.
Select the hand tool (), position the tool over the page at the bottom of the publication window, and drag the page up. Keeping dragging until you see the bottom of the page.

10.
If the last line of text in column 2 does not rest on the baseline, select the pointer tool, and click the text in column 2 to select it as a text block. Then drag the bottom windowshade handle so it snaps to the margin guide and the last line of text rests on the margin guide.

The second page of this publication is completely assembled.
