    Does a text box for an ebook have to be the exact size?

    Kratos27 Level 1

      I'm using Indesign to create an ebook. The usable, non-bordered area of each page is 800 x 600.

       

      For each page I use the Type Tool button to allow me to create a text box that fills the page area of 800 x600 pixels. I go to great effort to make sure it is aligned perfectly and exactly the right size. I have slight muscular problems in my hands which makes them unsteady so I sometimes don't draw the box exactly the same size and have to undo it and start again a few times. It would be easier for me if I didn't have to be so precise.

       

      My question is if I used the Type Tool to draw a Text box that is bigger than the 800x600 page would this have repurcussions in how the ebook functions or displays or does it not make any difference?
