Hi I’m new to InDesign and was wondering if there is a way to set a fixed gap between frames, which would imply that frames automatically reposition themselves according to their content.
Let’s say I have one text box with 50 words in it and, sitting right beneath it, a quarter of an inch away from the baseline of the last sentence, another text box with 60 words in it. Now let’s say I edit the text of the top one to bring the word count to 25. How can the quarter inch gap be maintained without having to manually adjust it? Would the solution be the same for frames containing images? What about a blend of text and images?
(I apologize if this question has already been answered elsewhere)
Try using a single frame. With paragraph styles, have two for your body text. One of the paragraph styles is used for the last paragraph and the space below set to 0.25"
No mater how much text, there will always be that 0.25" space before the next paragraph.
Sure, I can see how that works. Is that the only option though? And how about frames with images?How can I maintain my gap width if I apply "fit frame to content" to a smaller image?
If your images are inline, sure.
But there is not a means of auto-moving frames around based upon content changes.
