And next step is to flow our text so I am going to select this first text frame…and then press Command+D or Ctrl+D, I will go to the File menu and choose Place. …We could drag and drop our text in the same way as we did to get our pictures …into the frames but in this instance, with the text I am going to use the Place command instead.…Our text is in a folder called Text in the SF_layout folder which is in the…exercise files folder. We have two versions of each of our two articles, and I…am going to begin by using the raw version which is just plain text along with…some extra spaces and some unwanted character returns, for just added veracity,…and we are going to strip those out in a later step.

Q: The instructor explains that doubling-clicking on an image while holding down the Option key on a Mac will automatically open the image in Photoshop. However, the image opens into Preview instead. Why is this happening?
A: Before this feature will work, the correct file type associations must be set up, so that TIFs and JPEGs open with Photoshop and not with Preview.
From the Finder, select any JPEG or TIF file, then Choose File > Get Info. From the Open With drop down menu, choose Photoshop and click the Change All button. Repeat this process for each of the different file types you want use. You need only do this once and it should work from now on.
