- [Instructor] It's now time for us to take a look…at the paragraph level properties that we can change.…And I've switched here into InDesign,…and I've got a document that has some threaded text,…that's the way to refer to text that goes along boxes,…and in fact, you can see if I turn that on,…if I show the actual text threads that are here,…so I'll just go to Extras and show text threads there,…you can see how they link up, like so.…Those arrows pointing from the outflow port,…which is this thing, the bottom right hand corners…to the inport, which is the thing at the top left here…of all of these frames.…
