Text Layout

CorelDraw 10 has many features that are more commonly found in page layout programs. You can have multiple linked text frames, enabling the text to flow from one to the other. If you add or delete text from a linked paragraph text frame, the text will automatically adjust, flowing between the linked frames as necessary. This feature is commonly used in laying out multi-column newsletters, for example. You can also make text flow onto a path, flow into an object, or wrap around objects.

To flow text between paragraph text frames:

1.
Create the paragraph text or import a text file, as explained previously.

2.
Select the paragraph text object.

3.
If you reshape the text object so all the text isn't displayed, the bottom text handle displays as a text flow tab (Figure 11.23).

Figure 11.23. To link the current text frame to a new frame, click the text flow tab and drag to draw the new frame.


4.
Click the bottom text handle.

The pointer changes to a page symbol.

5.
Position the mouse where you want the paragraph text to continue. Click and drag a new frame to receive the additional text.

When you release the mouse button, the extra text from the first text frame flows into the new text frame (Figure 11.24).
