Chapter 8. Creating and Editing Shapes > Reshaping Paths and Frames

Reshaping Paths and Frames

InDesign uses the Direct Selection tool and several other dedicated tools for reshaping and editing the paths and frames which you’ve created with the Pen tool or any other method. You can use them immediately on any object without having to go into a special editing mode like QuarkXPress forces you to do.

Direct Selection Tool

Use the Direct Selection tool, not the Pen tool, to edit paths or frames. You can even use it while drawing: With the Pen tool selected, holding down the Command/Ctrl key gives you temporary access to this tool so you can move an anchor point as you’re drawing.
