Join Nigel French for an in-depth discussion in this video Adding supporting articles pt. 2, part of Designing a Magazine Layout.
So we are in layout20. We have most of the formatting applied to a second…article. Let's just zoom in on that and see how it's looking. Command+Spacebar…and Click-and-drag or Ctrl+Spacebar and Click-and-drag. And we have the…pictures layer turned off. So if you want to see the pictures, we are going to…need to turn that back on.…And just to refresh our memories on how we are trying to make this look, we…need to do several things. The text frames should span 6-column units rather…than 4 as they currently do. And then we want this title treatment up here.…
We also need to put a background behind it and then we need to anchor the images to the text.…Now here is a slight work around to a shortcoming of text anchoring. You will…see that I have the text wrapping around the images. I will turn of the grid…for a moment. And we need to do that for space considerations. However, if you…put a text wrap on an image and then you anchor that image to the text, the…first line of the text will not be affected by the text wrap. The solution is…
