    More control over background color?

    jqp

      Hi,

       

      I'm a new user to InDesign (CS5). I'm looking for a way to change the background color of areas of text without changing how the text flows, and while only changing the background color certain portions of the frame. I tried cutting the text and pasting it as a new frame, but I couldn't get it to flow as if it was still part of the main text flow. If I need to use new frames, I could use a tutorial on how to thread a new frame into an existing document and have it all flow properly. I'd prefer a way to simply change the background for only part of an existing frame, but I'm not getting my hopes up.
