Join Anne-Marie Concepción for an in-depth discussion in this video Specifying object position in a style, part of InDesign CC 2018 New Features.
- [Instructor] Another new attribute…that we can include in our object styles…in InDesign CC 2018 is the position…on the page of the selected object.…For example, let's say that I am creating…an object style for a photo credit for my magazine,…and I've already manually created one here.…I mean, manually positioned it, let's zoom in a bit.…It says photo credit Joe Schmoe Photography.…I'd like the bottom edge of the frame…aligned with the bottom margin,…and I'd like it to be about one-quarter inch from the spine.…
If I select this and I come up here…and look at the proxy points,…you can see that it's a quarter-inch from the left.…That's the x measurement, that's a horizontal measurement,…but it's 6.42 inches from the top, which is not right.…This is an 11-inch tall page,…and you can clearly see it's at 10 inches.…What's happening here.…It's because I don't have the proxy point…in the right place, so I'm measuring…from the bottom left of this thing.…I'm measuring this point right here.…
I select it here, there we go.…
