Chapter 18. BASIC TEXT > Working with Text Blocks

Working with Text Blocks

All text in FreeHand starts inside a text block. There are two types of text blocks. Standard text blocks have a fixed height and width.

To create a standard text block:

1.
Select the Text tool from the Tools panel 1.

2.
Drag across the page. How far you drag determines the size of the text block.

3.
Release the mouse button to see the text block and the text ruler 2.
