Hoping somebody out there can help..
I'm starting a new business, and teaching myself CS6 from scratch to design a 16 page catalogue in the next 4 weeks. I'm working with a 4, 6 or 9 grid structure per page using frames to create the grids. However, i can't work out how to show the frames holding the product information when previewing and printing the brochure. I also want to lock the template frames in place if possible so they can't be altered when inserting text and images.
I've watched a few tutorials and done quite a bit of research, but can't crack it!
There's somethings you can and can't do.
You can use the options in Print or Export to show the grid/margin frames etc.
But other things you might have to draw manually on the file.
If you want to lock certain items then you can do so by creating new layers and locking the layers
Was there anything else?
Thanks for the feedback. Your answer helped me realise that text/Image frames aren't the right tool to create my catalogue page box template, but i haven't yet figured out which feature i should be using or how to edit the layout i want to copy! (below)
I've done some more research on Frames, Layers, Tables & Rows, but still can't see which feature i should be using to replicate the page layout below to be printed and which will contain the product information.
