As the title asks: how do I align the last paragraph of the bottom of the text box?
I am a beginner at InDesign and I haven't been able to find an answer to the question yet. I'd like to create a text box where the last paragraph, it only contains one line of text, aligns itself to the bottom of the text box while leaving the rest of the content above it aligned to the top. So far I've only seen options to vertically align all the text within a text box or horizontally align different paragraphs within the same text box.
if there isn't a way to do this directly, what's the best way to do it indirectly? Using multiple text boxes?
I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to do, but as an InDesign beginner you'd find being able to use the baseline grid feature with text useful. Here's a tutorial :
If there are only two paragraphs in the frame you can use vertical alignment of Justified with a REALLY big number for paragraph spacing limit to keep the first paragraph at the top and the second at the bottom of the frame without affencting the intra-paragraph line spacing, but if there are more than two it will split the total space between them.
