Text frame additional suggestions


Recommended Posts

Hi,

  1. It would be nice if, beside dividing text frame to columns, text frame can be divided to rows.
  2. Beside changing the column width, it would be nice if we can change the gutter width, too.
  3. There is very interesting feature in InDesign (see attachments). If you start drawing any object (text or picture frame, poligon...) and you press on right/left or top/down arrows -- before you release the mouse button -- you will multiply the object. Lets say, you press the right and top arrow twice, you get 9 objects in 3 rows and 3 columns that are placed on the same area of the starting object.

Sorry Walt, I wasn't precise. What I meant was by dragging, as we can adjust the column width.
