hi..just want to make sure I'm doing this right... I want to create a sold frame around my text frames... When I select the Type Tool to create a text box for me to type in, the stroke box shows a solid black line, which is what I want To hear around my text box when it prints. Does this solid black line selection stay as my selection each time I select the type tool? In other words, I don't have to select it each time? Sorry..this stuff is all new to me..
InDesign (like many programs) sets it's default settings this way:
Thanks! That explains it in a nutshell!
You might want to set up an Object Style for this type of frame that includes the stroke, the paragraph style for the text, and some inset so the type is spaced away from the stroke slightly.
