Chapter 9. Transforming

Chapter 9. Transforming

In the previous chapters, we’ve covered the process of getting text and graphics into your InDesign publication. This chapter is all about what you can do with those elements once you’ve wrestled them onto your pages. The process of moving, rotating, scaling, reflecting, or shearing an object is called transformation.

Many of the topics in this chapter have been touched on in the preceding chapters—mainly because everything you can do in InDesign is interconnected. In the old days, software was entirely linear and modal: one had to proceed from this screen to that screen following a particular sequence of steps. These days, software is extremely nonlinear and nonmodal (that is, you can do things many different ways in many different orders), and, therefore, much harder to write about. It’s enough to drive one mad! Your purchase of this book will make our time at Looney Farm that much more pleasant. Thank you.
