Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Placing and flowing text, part of Introducing InDesign.
- [Voiceover] Now let's say that you've created some text…in a word processor such as Microsoft Word,…or exported that text from another application.…Why then you can turn around…and place that text into InDesign…as well as flow the text into multiple columns and pages.…Now I'm going to start things off…by showing you the manual approach,…but I'll also share with you…a few automated tips and tricks as well.…So I'm going to start by going to the file menu…choosing new and then choosing document,…Or you can press that shortcut Ctrl+N…or Command+N on the Mac.…
Now I'm gonna switch from default…to the one-on-one preset that I created…way back in Chapter One.…As you can see here that calls for eight pages.…We have a width of 48 picas.…A height of 58 picas six points.…We've got a couple of columns…and we have some different margins as well,…and I'm working with facing pages.…At this point I'll go ahead and click OK…to create a new untitled document.…Now before I place my text which I'll do in just a moment,…I want to draw your attention…
