Chapter 3. Text

Chapter 3. Text

Text is the stream of characters that inhabit the text frames of your publication. Text is not about what those characters look like (that’s “type”)—it’s about the characters themselves, and the text frames that hold them.

There are areas of overlap between these definitions, of course. Changing the number of columns in a text frame, for example, definitely changes the appearance of the text, but we’ve put it in this chapter because it’s an organizational change, not one that changes the appearance of individual characters.
