Chapter 10. Creating Frames > Flexibility with Frames

Flexibility with Frames

When you work with QuarkXPress boxes, you have one workflow: First, you draw a text box or a picture box, then you fill it with content. InDesign offers more flexibility to the process: You can continue to use the same method you learned with XPress, or you can learn to create frames on-the-fly.

Placeholder Frames

When you want to use the XPress method, you can use InDesign’s frame tools (see Figure 10-1). There are three basic tools to create a frame in the shape of a rectangle, an ellipse, and a regular polygon. (We’ll show you how create squares, circles and stars from these tools in Chapter 12. And you can make fancier boxes with corner effects, which we describe in Chapter 15.)
