Lesson 4. Jewelcase booklet > Assembling the second double-page spread

Assembling the second double-page spread

In addition to placing and formatting more text and graphic elements on the second double-page spread, you will create a rule above a paragraph. You will also use the Image Control command to modify an image.

Creating a rule aligned with a single-line paragraph

To frame each subhead visually, you will add a thick paragraph rule to the subheads. As in earlier steps in this lesson, you open a series of dialog boxes to set the stroke style and weight, color, horizontal width, and vertical positioning of the paragraph rules.

Remember

Rules are paragraph attributes and not independent graphic objects; they cannot be selected or edited with the pointer tool.


  1. Click the page 4 icon to view the second double-page spread.

  2. Magnify the view of the top portion of column 1 on page 5.

  3. If necessary, select the text tool ( ), and triple-click the subhead Photographers to select it.

  4. In the Control palette, type 7 for Size ( ) and 13 for Leading ( ). Choose Very Loose from the Tracking ( ) pop-up menu. Then click the Bold ( ), Reverse ( ), and All Caps buttons ( ).

  5. With the subhead still selected, choose Type > Paragraph, and type 2 for Left (to specify size of the indent). Make sure Left is selected for Alignment, and click the Rules button.


    Figure 4.46.


  6. Select Rule Above Paragraph, and choose Custom for Stroke Style. In the Custom Stroke dialog box, choose the solid line, type 11 for Stroke Weight, leave Transparent Background selected, and click OK.

  7. In the Paragraph Rules dialog box, choose Dark Blue for Stroke Color, and leave the Width of Column option selected. For Indent, type 4 for Right (to specify a 4-pica indentation).


    Figure 4.47.


  8. Note

    The indent option indents the rule from the right or left edge of the column (for Width of Column) or text (for Width of Text).


  9. Click the Options button. Type p8 for Top (to specify where the top of the rule starts above the baseline), hold down Shift (Windows) or Option (Macintosh) and click OK to close all the dialog boxes.

  10. Choose File > Save.

Creating and applying a subhead style

Since one more subhead must be formatted, you will save time by creating a style using the subhead you have already formatted.

  1. With the subhead still selected, choose Type > Define Styles, and click New.

  2. Type Subhead for Name, hold down Shift (Windows) or Option (Macintosh), and click OK.

  3. With the subhead still selected, click Subhead in the Styles palette.

    You will apply the Subhead style to another subhead. To center the subhead within the rule, you will change the indent of the second subhead.

  4. Scroll to the bottom half of the page. With the text tool selected, click in the next subhead, System Requirements, to establish an insertion point. In the Styles palette, click Subhead.

  5. With the insertion point still established in the second subhead, choose Type > Paragraph, and type 1 for Left, and click OK.

    You will roll up the windowshade handle of this text block to push the system requirements subhead and paragraph to page 7 (where the remainder of the story is placed).

  6. Select the pointer tool, click the text in column 1 to select it as a text block. Drag the bottom windowshade up just above the subhead System Requirements.

Placing and cropping a graphic

After placing a photograph on the left page of the second double-page spread, you'll crop the edges of the photograph to align it with the edges of the page.

  1. Choose View > Fit in Window. In the Layers palette, select the Art layer.

  2. Choose File > Place and double-click 04ArtH.tif in the 04Project folder.

  3. When prompted to include a copy of the graphic in the publication, click No.

  4. With the loaded graphic icon displayed, click the upper left corner of the left page (page 4).

    Using the control palette, you'll align the right edge of the photograph precisely with the inside edge of the page, letting its other edges overlap the outside edges of the page.

  5. In the Control palette Proxy icon, select the top right reference point. Type 0 for X, and –0p9 for Y. Press Enter or Return.


    Figure 4.50.


    As with all images in this project that extend to the edge of the page, this photograph was sized to allow for a bleed. Once again, you'll crop the photograph to the page edges.

  6. Select the cropping tool ( ), position the tool over the top left graphic handle of the photograph, and drag down and right to the corner of the page.

  7. With the cropping tool still selected, position the cursor over the bottom-center graphics handle, and drag up to the bottom edge of the page.


    Figure 4.51.


  8. Choose File > Save.

Placing a graphic

You will place a photograph in the lower right corner of page 5. You'll align it to a ruler guide just above the page-number and the right margin.

  1. Magnify the view of the lower half portion of page 5.

  2. From the horizontal ruler, drag to create a horizontal ruler guide at approximately 25p6.

  3. Choose File > Place, and double-click 04ArtI.tif in the 04Project folder.

  4. With the loaded graphic icon displayed, click anywhere in the lower right corner of the right page to place the photograph.

  5. Once placed, drag the photograph until its bottom edge snaps to the 25p6 horizontal ruler guide and the right margin guide.

  6. Choose File > Save.

Placing and modifying an image

The Image Control command makes it possible to alter the appearance of line art or bitmap or grayscale images, adjusting the lightness or darkness of an entire image and adjusting the screen pattern (where you specify whether the image is composed of dots or lines).

You will place a grayscale image and use the Image Control command to reverse the light and dark areas within the image.

Note

You cannot use the Image Control command to alter a color image. Also, images adjusted with the Image Control command must be printed to a PostScript printing device.


  1. Choose View > Fit in Window.

  2. Choose File > Place, and double-click 04ArtJ.tif in the 04Project folder.

  3. With the loaded graphic icon displayed, click in the upper right corner of the right page (in the black box) to place the illustration.

  4. With the illustration still selected, in the Control palette make sure the top left reference point in the Proxy icon is selected. Type 20p4 for X and p7 for Y, and press Enter or Return to position the illustration.


    Figure 4.53.


  5. With the illustration still selected, choose Element > Image > Image Control.

    Refer to the Adobe PageMaker 6.5 User Guide for more information about the Image Control command.

  6. Depending upon your system, do one of the following:

    • Windows: Set the Contrast option to -50, and click OK.

    • Macintosh: Click the Reverse Grey Levels button ( ), and click OK.


    Figure 4.54.


    The black portions of the image reverse to white, and vice versa.

    Note

    Unlike text, you cannot reverse an imported bitmap image by applying the paper color to it. PageMaker applies a color to only the black and gray portions of the image. The white would remain white.


  7. Choose File > Save.

Placing the captions

After placing the captions that accompany the illustration and photograph on the right page, you will apply the style Caption and position the captions above the photograph.

  1. From the vertical ruler, drag to create a vertical ruler guide at approximately 19p8.

  2. Magnify the view of the portion of the black box between the two images, then click the Text layer in the Layers palette.

  3. Choose File > Place, and double-click 04TextE.doc in the 04Project folder.

  4. With the loaded text icon displayed, drag to define a text block that extends from the 19p8 vertical ruler guide to the right margin guide on the right page (exact height is not important), taking note of its approximate position to be able to select it with the text tool.


    Figure 4.55.


    Since the placed text is colored black, it cannot be viewed on the black rectangle.

  5. Select the text tool ( ), click in the area where you just placed the captions to establish an insertion point, choose Edit > Select All, and select Caption in the Style palette.

    (Windows only) If the captions remain invisible, press Ctrl together with the Shift and F12 keys to redraw the screen.


    Figure 4.56.


  6. From the horizontal ruler, drag to create a horizontal ruler guide at approximately 12p5, aligning it with the baseline of the text in column 1. (You may need to scroll the page.)

  7. Select the pointer tool, and click the caption text to select the text block. Use the arrow keys or Control palette nudge buttons to move the text block until the baseline of the first line of the caption is aligned with the 12p5 horizontal ruler guide.

  8. With the captions still selected as a text block, drag the bottom windowshade handle down to display the entire story.

    You need to separate the two captions. You'll edit the Caption style to include space after each paragraph.

  9. Hold down Control (Windows) or Command (Macintosh), and click the Caption style. Click the Para button, and type p26 for After. Then hold down Shift (Windows) or Option (Macintosh), and click OK to close the dialog boxes.

    PageMaker inserts 26 points between the captions. Because 26 points is twice the leading value, the captions remain aligned with the adjacent text.

    The second double-page spread is complete.

  10. Choose View > Fit in Window.
