Chapter 10. Whose Line Is It Anyway? ...... > Threaded Text Blocks of Any Shape

Threaded Text Blocks of Any Shape

Text can be threaded between objects of any shape, not just rectangles. Draw a shape using any of the Shape tools (or even the Pen tool [P]) from the Toolbox, then click directly on the path of the shape with the Area Type tool (which is nested under the Type tool in the Toolbox) to add some text inside the shape. (Note: If your shape had any stroke or fill, those will disappear when you click with the Area Type tool, which converts shapes automatically into text frames.) Create a second shape, select both shapes with the Selection tool (V), and choose Threaded Text>Create from the Type menu. It’s magic!
