Hour 17. Manipulating Images > Working with Text Boxes

Working with Text Boxes

Text boxes provide a great deal of flexibility in arranging text on a page. You can use them for sidebars, pull quotes in newspaper or magazine-style articles, and text labels in a drawing, among other things. In addition to formatting both the text boxes and the text they contain, you can also link text boxes together so that text flows from one text box into the next.

Formatting the Text in a Text Box

As you learned earlier in this hour, you can format a text box in the same way you can other drawing objects—applying a fill color, border colors, and so on. You can also format the text in a text box with any standard font and paragraph option in the Formatting toolbar. This includes changing the font color with the Font Color button, which appears in both the Formatting toolbar and the Drawing toolbar (refer to Figure 17.9). Finally, you can change the text direction. When a text box is selected, a small Text Box toolbar appears. This toolbar contains a Change Text Direction button (refer to Figure 17.19). Click the button one or more times to change the orientation of your text.
