Chapter 13. Framing Pages > Creating Frames by Dragging

Creating Frames by Dragging

You can also create a frame border by viewing the default frame border around the page and then dragging the border to create multiple frames. Again, an unsaved frameset page will be created automatically when you perform these steps.

To create a frame by dragging:

1.
Open a new Document window, if you need one, by pressing Ctrl+N (Command+N).

In the New Document dialog box, if it appears, select a plain, blank HTML document and click on Create.

2.
From the Document window menu bar, select View > Visual Aids > Frame Borders. A heavy outline will appear around the blank space in the window (Figure 13.8).

Figure 13.8. The heavy outline that appears should resemble the frame borders you've seen on pages around the Web.


3.
Mouse over one of the outside borders, and the mouse pointer will turn into a double-headed arrow.

4.
Drag it to a new location (Figure 13.9), and release the mouse button when you've positioned the border where you choose (Figure 13.10).

Figure 13.9. Click and drag an outside border, and you can create a new frame by splitting the original page.


Figure 13.10. Let go of the mouse button when the frame border is where you want. Ta-da! You now have two frames.
