          What you need to create is a ounded rectangle, and a (thick/thin) stroke.


          1. Apply the corner radius (eg: .125:" in my example), and the shapeo of the radius undernneath.
          2. In the stroke palette change the type to thick/thin.

          The 2nd item you would make a rounded rectalgle, then put you text frame on top filled with white to knock out the center.

            Awesome this helped a lot! So...I ran into another problem though...The words Power Plant Chemistry will not align on another page I am working on, could you help me with that?


            Thank you sooooo much!

              Do you mean you are selecting the text box "Power Plant Chemistry" then copying and then pasting onto the next page?

              If so, use edit menu "Paste in Place rather than Paste. Cmd-option-shift-V


              Note you have to turn OFF facing pages for this to work.

                Rather than turn off facing pages, you can still paste in place, and then simply add, or in this case subtract, the page width from the value in the x-coordinate field in the Control panel while the frame is still selected. Just type + or - anfer the current value, as appropriate, and then the page width including the units, and press Enter and ID will do the math.
