Lesson 4. Publishing a Newsletter > Pasting text as inline graphics

Pasting text as inline graphics

The NEWS headline text frame you have just created could be placed onto the page like a graphic, with the text underneath wrapping around it. But what if you want this headline to flow with the text in the table of contents, so that when a line of text is added underneath the News headline, the other headlines and following text move down automatically? To make this happen, you need to place this headline text frame as an inline graphics into the text stream. An inline graphics can contain text or a graphic (or even other inline graphics).

1.
With the frame still selected, choose Edit > Copy.

2.
Select the Type tool, and place the cursor at the beginning of the story, in our dummy table of contents, in the single-column frame on the left side of the page.

3.
Choose Edit > Paste (Ctrl-V / Command-V) to insert the headline frame as an inline graphics into the text stream. Press Enter (Windows) or Return (Mac OS) once to make this inline frame become its own paragraph. That way, its paragraph attributes (like horizontal alignment, left or right indent, alignment to a baseline grid, and minimal space before and after this “paragraph”) can be controlled independently from the paragraph attributes of the surrounding body text.

4.
Save and close the file.

The other table of contents headlines are designed in the same way. For your convenience, the additional headlines, and a masthead designed in Illustrator, using the assets created in Lesson 1, are included in a file called mynewsletterfinal.indd in the Lesson04 folder. This file will be used later in this lesson, when you place a photo into the graphic frame that you prepared earlier on. But first this photo needs to be modified using Photoshop's new Vanishing Point feature.
