Everyone knows you can rotate a text frame at any angle you want: 5 degrees, 63 degrees, etc. The text then tags along with it.
But what if you want to rotate text separately from the frame—or rotate the frame around the text? I show you how this week in InDesign Secrets.
Pay attention to the tool you’re using! The Selection tool (aka the black arrow tool) selects the object and anything nested inside it. So it selects both the text frame and the text. However, the Direct Selection tool works a little differently, and you can use it to your advantage when you want to treat your text frame differently from the text inside it.
Find out how in today’s free video from my InDesign Secrets course. It’s free for one week only—so be sure to watch it before it disappears.
