CS6 has "gridified" frame tools. As you drag, press the arrow keys to make columns and rows (spacing will be waht you have set for gutter width in the document setup), you can then use the Gap tool to adjust the size of frames keeping the gap between them constant.
Thanks for the quick reply.
Tried those methods. They're 'interesting' and a bit helpful for quickly getting the initial group of frames drawn. But I couldn't find the 'gutter width', and when I use cmd+arrows while dragging, it's a bit too slow and kludgy. I think distrbute space would be quicker and more accurate.
But unfortunatley, I couldn't get the gap tool to be very effective no matter what key-command I tried. It appears (unless I'm missing something) that it is mostly helpful for adjusting the gap between 2 objects only, even if those are 2 rows or columns.
But I have a single row of 6 image frames spanning a page with the proper gap set, and no mater what I try I can't get all the gaps betweeen all images to grow/shrink in synch with each other. And I can't 'move' the gap between a couple imaages and have the others slide over with them. Only the image directly adjacent to the gap tool seems to be affected. So this seems kind of novel when adjusting between 2 images/rows/columns, but not very helfpul for anything more than this.
- Please let me know if I'm misusing the gap tool.
- And is the table bug really un-overcomeable? That would work so much easier.
I actually don't use the Gap tool so I'm not up on the intricacies, but I think it's covered pretty well in the help files. I think you'r right, though, if you have an established grid of some sort and want to change ALL the gaps at once (which Is not what it sounded like in the first post), Distribute Spacing from the Align panel using a fixed size is the way to go.
Gutter width is set initially in Document Setup when you create the file. Subsequent to taht it can be reset from Layout > Margins and Columns...
