  1. I have a partly transparent white frame, and I'd like to soften the edge with an outer glow. It was really surprising to me that the entire frame became opaque. I think the starting opacity of the glow should be the frame opacity, not 100% The attached image shows two transparent frames, with and without the glow.
  2. Sure, here is the full layer list. I have not been able to make it happen again, the background from the master panel refuses to move, no matter what I do which is unfortunate as I did not get it put back correctly, you can see a thin white line at the top of the second page. What do I need to do to get access to moving it on purpose ?
  3. I have a background image on the master page, and it is possible to reposition this image within the child pages. That's not how I'd expect master page elements to work.
  4. I'd like to be able to move an image around in an image frame so I can control which part is displayed. I'm aware of the image properties, scale to min/max fit, stretch and none but I just want to select which part of the image is visible in the image frame. In the attached picture, there is no scaling but I want to slide the content of the frame over so the edges are even. I'm probably missing something obvious, please enlighten me :-) )
  5. I think I figured out why it happens. If you happen to have the text frame tool selected when you double click on another frame, for example an image frame or rectangle frame it will instantly become a text frame. That's really not reasonable behavious if you ask me...
  6. The title says it all, that's definitely not reasonable behaviour. I had an image frame where I wanted to replace the image, the text frame tool was selected and when I double clicked on the image, it disappeared and I could see in the layer list that the layer was now a text frame. I really don't think it should do that.
  7. Perhaps this falls under the category of "works as designed" but it's not what I was aiming for. I just want a text frame with rounded edges and a square text block, the text is inset plenty, there's no need for enveloping it in the shape of the frame. The rounded text frame started as a rectangle with rounded edges, then I converted to a text frame. Anything that can be done, or should I just keep the transparent background as a rounded rectangle and place a regular text frame on top ?
  8. Ah, no I'm quite sure I haven't explicitly converted the rectangle to a text frame with the menu item. I see the menu item now, but never noticed it before. It doesn't have a shortcut so that'd not be it. Is there a way to make a text frame have a partly transparent background ?
  9. Ok, you say "after a shape has been converted to a text box". Is this expected behaviour ? That really doesn't seem reasonable to me... Incidentally the only reason I made the partly transparent rectangle, and put the text frame on top was that I couldn't find a way to make the text frame itself have a partly transparent background. What am I missing here , how is it done directly?
  10. I made a partly transparent rectangle with rounded corners using the rectangle tool. Pretty sure I used the straight corner version and set the corner radius to 10. Not sure what I did in between, but now that rectangle is listed as a text frame in the layer list called "mm", and I no longer has access to changing the corner radius that I can see. Also, if I make that layer invisible with the checkbox in the layer list, the frame of the rounded rectangle remains until the document refreshes. In the layer list is a small green rectangle that I made as a test, it seems to appear correctly. Anyway, please hurry and take my money, you deserve it :-) Thanks Kent
