InDesign CS4: Typography explores the numerous type options, type-related features, and type-specific preferences of Adobe InDesign CS4. Using practical, real-world examples, instructor and designer Nigel French explains the purpose of each feature and describes the conventions for how and when to use it. Nigel dissects the anatomy of a typeface and defines the terminology needed for the successful application of typography. He moves from the micro to the macro level, addressing such issues as choosing page size; determining the size of margins; adjusting number columns; and achieving a clean, structured look with baseline grids. This course is essential for anyone looking to expand their work from just laying out a page to understanding the hows and whys of typography. Exercise files accompany this course.
In this scenario, we are working with a step-by-step type article where each piece of text accompanies a picture. We want the text to start in the frame directly below the picture. Now assuming that these frames are threaded together, and they are, if I turn on my guides and then select one of these text frames, we go to View > Show Text Threads. We can see that the text frames are threaded together. Then all we need to do is change the Keep Options for the style that begins at the top of each of these frames and the style is called step.
And let's go and start this. Redo this one from scratch. So I have a separate layer. It's called start and without these frame breaks, this is how our text is going to look, but with just a few clicks we can radically transform the appearance of this text. So I'll put my cursor in the first instance of these sub heads. In this case it's called step no break, and I'm going to edit the definition of that, right-click on it and then come to my Keep Options and Start Paragraph.
In this case I want In Next Frame. Look at that. The whole thing takes care of itself. Now, each step starts directly beneath the picture in the appropriate frame.
