Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Framing a picture, part of InDesign CS4 Getting Started.
In this exercise I'm going to show you to frame an imported photograph in…InDesign, using a combination of a stroke and a drop shadow.…I am looking at an image called Gnarled tree.indd found inside the Exercise…Files folder. I am looking at page 2 of the document and I am zoomed in on this…imported image of this tree.…Now, let's say that we want to take the tree and we want to give it a thin…black outline and a drop shadow. I will click on the tree with my Selection…tool to select it, then I will bring up my Swatches panel and I will click on black.…
Now that didn't appear to do anything. The reason is, because I just…went ahead and filled the frame that contains the image with black and then the…tree is covering up that black fill, which isn't what we want.…So, I'm going to change the Fill back to None, which I can do by either…clicking on None or I could press the Slash key, which looks exactly like that…red line for None.…Next, I am going to switch to the Stroke. See these little icons right there;…

Q: When creating more than one set of numbered text in a document, for the second numbered list, the numbering starts at the final number of the first n list. For example, if my first list was 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 the next list starts at 6, 7, 8, 9 etc. How can I start at 1 again for the second and subsequent lists?
A: To reset the list numbering, follow these steps:
1) Click in the paragraph that should be #1.
