Lesson 4. Publishing a Newsletter > Creating graphic frames and wrapping text

Creating graphic frames and wrapping text

Next, you will place a graphic placeholder frame inside this text frame. Later, you will put a Photoshop image into this frame.

1.
Select the Rectangle Frame tool (not to be confused with the Rectangle tool) from the toolbox, and draw a rectangle inside the large text frame, roughly two inches (or 12 picas) high and spanning the two right columns of the text frame.

The text frame placeholder text is meant to wrap around the graphic frame. You can specify this by doing the following:

2.
With the graphic frame selected, choose Wrap around bounding box in the Text Wrap palette (Window > Text Wrap).

Note that the large text frame now has a red plus sign in its out port, at its lower right corner, indicating that more text is loaded in this frame than can be fitted. This is called overset text.
