Fitting Text to a Specific Size

Live Text Effects with InDesign

Ever see a great text treatment and wonder if it’s an image or actual live type? You too can fool the eye and create type that looks like a work of art—and then customize it to fit any frame.

Unfortunately, InDesign doesn’t offer a Fit Content to Frame option for text frames, but Anne-Marie Concepción shows you how to skirt the issue in this episode of InDesign Secrets. She shows you how to first fit the frame to the content, and then rescale the frame and its contents to the exact size you need in your layout. Plus, learn how to force justify the text and take care of flexible width spaces that overstep their bounds. Art or live type? Keep your readers guessing with InDesign’s great tools.
