First off, i'm a student in said class. So i'm a begininer in In-design.
The problem i'm having is taking a text i typed out, for example, 2 capital JJ's ,out of the bounding box.
Or the text box. Anyways, I need help, and will be looking perodically for an answer.
The reason i want to take them out is so i can select them, and resize the J's , is there a way to do this.
Note i allready type out the body copy and caption. Any help would be appreciated.
You make your screen captures using whatever method you woukd normally use in your OS, then you come here, click the camera icon that Michael circled in his example (you MUST come back to the web page to add an image) and browse for the image. It will be embedded in your post.
Well, it's an excercise for class. The trouble i'm having is being able to edit the J's outside the bounding box. i.e
take them out and resize them. what i'm doing is designing 24 examples about typography, using 1 letter, in this case it would be J.
Hope this clarifies things.
Not a lot...
Type must be either in a text frame or on a path. It can't exist in a vacuum, so to speak.
You can set the letter in its own frame, or on a path, then group with other frames, or anchor into the text flow in another frame (read about anchored objects in the help files). If the text befgins a paragraph you can style it as a drop cap, and of course you can select text anywhere and apply formatting, either as a character style or a local formatting override.
